Ramp to nowhere may finally be opened

A ramp off the southbound Decarie Expressway may finally be opened to traffic, six years after it was constructed.

Transport Quebec says the six-million dollar structure at de Maisonneuve Boulevard at Addington was built to accommodate traffic heading to the MUHC superhospital and it was always scheduled to open when the hospital does, in the spring of 2015.

But first, the City of Montreal must add eastbound lanes to westbound-only de Maisonneuve Boulevard.

Transport Quebec says it is urging the city to make the lane changes as soon as possible, so the ramp's opening can be moved up to ease congestion in the area.
