More roadwork coming on the Ville-Marie this fall
Motorists who use the Ville-Marie Expressway this weekend will have to deal with some major closures between now and the end of the year.
As of last night, the St-Jacques exit (exit 2) will be closed, in order to facilitate work on access roads leading to the MUHC superhospital site in NDG. It will remain closed through Monday morning.
And beginning this weekend and for the next eight consecutive weekends, Atwater Ave. will have only one lane open in each direction instead of the usual three; Greene Ave. under the expressway will be closed in the northbound direction until the end of October, and the Greene Ave. ramp for the Ville-Marie eastbound will be closed until the end of December.
The transport department suggests the roadwork could be put off in case of inclement weather conditions. There are showers in the forecast for Saturday and Sunday.
