Construction Work on Île-aux-Tourtes Bridge

Starting July 13 until Spring 2021

Highway 40 between Vaudreuil-Dorion and Senneville
New stage of repair work on the pont de l'Île-aux-Tourtes


The Ministère des Transports informs road users that it will begin a new phase of repair work on the Île-aux-Tourtes bridge on Highway 40 starting July 13. A first phase, until September, will consist of replacing the lampposts and dismantling the central mall. Night closures of two out of three lanes, one direction or the other, will be required during construction. Construction works will take place until spring 2021.

Traffic management - From July 13 until September 2020

Eastbound (towards Montreal)

  • 3 lanes open from Monday to Friday, between 5 a.m. and 9 a.m. *
  • 2 laness open outside this period

Westbound (towards Vaudreuil-Dorion)

  • 3 lanes open Monday to Friday, between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. *
  • 2 lanes open outside this period

* At all times, trucks will not be allowed to drive on the right shoulder in both directions.

For the second phase of the works, a new traffic management will be implemented. A press release will be sent later.

In the event of unfavorable weather conditions or operational constraints, this work could be postponed or canceled. Note that the posted speed will be reduced to 90 km / h at all times on Highway 40 in east and west directions. In order to adequately plan your trips, find out about current and future obstacles by consulting Québec 511.



The Ministère des Transports informs road users that a long-term change in configuration on the Île-aux-Tourtes bridge of highway 40 between Vaudreuil-Dorion and Montreal will require a new exit route from the city center of Vaudreuil-Dorion, from avenue Saint-Charles and boulevard de la Cité-des-Jeunes, for heavy vehicles bound for the island of Montreal (highway 40 eastbound).

Starting August 8th at 8 a.m. until the end of fall 2020, the new mandatory detour in effect will route heavy vehicles to the Highway 40 eastbound entrance near Saint-Charles Avenue.

Note that trucks must stay in the left lane in both directions on the Île-aux-Tourtes bridge.

Here is the visual of the detour path:

The reconstruction of the Île-aux-Tourtes bridge is in the planning stage, as indicated in the Plan québécois des infrastructures 2020-2030. Until this major project is completed, other interventions are planned to keep the infrastructure functional and safe.

This project is part of the liste des investissements routiers 2020-2022 de la région de Montréal. 

The Ministère thanks road users for their cooperation. For the safety of road users and that of workers, compliance with the signs in place is essential.

Work on the Upstream Jetty of Parks Canada

Mid-May to November 2020

Parks Canada wishes to inform the public that major work will occur this year to the upstream jetty at the Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Canal National Historic Site. The jetty was closed following the severely damaging floods of 2017 and will undergo significant rehabilitation work. The planned work will be carried out from approximately mid-May, to November 2020.

Parks Canada’s efforts include repairing sections of the jetty’s walls, installing structural concrete slabs, curbs and guardrails, building pedestrian trails and installing new lampposts. The jetty’s surface will also be replaced with concrete and wood inserts, as these materials are more resistant to spring freshets and flooding.

Parks Canada’s visitor services, including reception, information, lockage and mooring, are currently suspended until further notice in an effort to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). However, additional temporary closures of the affected areas will be required throughout the duration of this work. Once the navigation season has reopened, access will be maintained for boaters, although the work may cause occasional disruptions. Noise and dust are also anticipated, as is the transportation of materials in the evenings and at night.

Public safety is a priority for Parks Canada. As such, work sites will be clearly identified and secured and visitors are asked to be patient, exercise caution and respect the temporary signage. Throughout the work, Parks Canada will work closely with its partners to minimize the impact on all users. Rest assured that the work is planned in a way to ensure minimal inconveniences.

As a result of completing this federal infrastructure project, $14 million will have been invested over the last five years to protect this valued site and to ensure safe, high-quality visitor experiences.

Datasheets for all sectors 


Environmental mitigation measures :

The REM project aims to integrate harmoniously with its immediate surroundings, which is why more than 85% of the work will be carried out on public domain, on existing road and railway rights-of-way. At the same time, however, some brush clearing and deforestation work will be realized in two sequences, before March 1st and after August 15th, which are necessary so the REM rail infrastructure, stations and access roads can be constructed. In the next few weeks, branch removal and tree and shrub cutting will take place in your sector.

Mitigation measures :

  • Work will be performed outside the nesting season (March 1st to August 15th)
  • These activities will be supervised and coordinated by our environmental experts, and will follow industry best practices and applicable standards and regulations;
  • At-risk plant species and trees will be relocated;
  • Through a reforestation program, the same number of trees that were cut in temporary construction zones will be replanted, and an additional 10% will be planted in the municipal territory or borough where the trees were cut.
