A well-travelled downtown artery will be shut down for two weeks as part of the work to be done around the site of the future CHUM superhospital.
The stretch of Viger St. E. between St. Denis and St. Elisabeth — adjacent to the Champ-de-Mars metro station — will be closed for two weeks to allow for underground pipes to be installed around the site.
From Saturday, March 1 through March 16th, exit 6 on the eastbound Ville Marie at St. Laurent will also be blocked.
Pedestrians will have access to Viger St. only on the south sidewalk until work is complete.
CHUM suggests motorists use Rene-Lévesque Blvd. as an alternate east-west route.
