Roadwork this weekend on the Champlain Bridge, Dorval tunnel

Work will continue to remove the so-called "superbeam" from the Champlain Bridge this weekend — and the forecasts are suggesting the work is unlikely to be cancelled because of bad weather.

The third major work blitz is scheduled to take place this weekend, from Friday at 9:00 p.m. to Monday at 5:00 a.m.

During that time, just two lanes will be open in each direction on the Highway 15 approach to the bridge, and on both the Ile-des-Soeurs and Champlain bridges, two inbound lanes will be open, and just one outbound lane.

The corresponding access ramps will also be closed.


Cyclists to take over streets of Montreal this weekend

Once again, the federal bridge authority is urging motorists to avoid the area while the work goes on, and instead use one of the other south shore bridges to get to and from the south shore.

The metro's yellow line between Montreal and Longueuil, which had been undergoing work on its tunnels that had forced it to shut down on weekends, will be open this weekend, and every weekend until mid-September, when the tunnel work will resume.

Meanwhile, work to remove paralumes from the Dorval tunnel will force a partial closure of Highway 13 this weekend.

The northbound portion of the 13 will be closed between Hickmore and the 40 from Friday at 11 p.m. to Monday at 5 a.m., while the southbound portion will be shut down between the 40 and Cote de Liesse.
