Work halted in Turcot Yards due to asbestos
Transport Quebec has shut down three worksites in the Turcot Yards because of worries about asbestos.
La Presse says the asbestos was discovered when soil samples were collected for lead testing. Until now, there have been no concerns about asbestos in the area.
The Yards will be a major staging ground for the eventual demolition and rebuilding of the Turcot interchange and much preparatory work is needed.
Transport Quebec says the work sites will remain closed for at least a week.
