Construction Work on Île-aux-Tourtes Bridge

The Ministère des Transports wishes to inform road users that a closure of two out of three lanes will be implemented on the Île-aux-Tourtes bridge in the westbound during the weekend of January 22, 2021. This obstruction is necessary in order to allow concrete work under the structure.

One lane open westbound - Friday 8:30 p.m. to Monday 5:30 a.m. 

Please note that during this closure, trucks will be prohibited on the bridge. A signposted detour will be set up via exit 41 for Boulevard des Anciens-Combattants, the H-20 westbound and exit 29 for the Highway 30 West / H-40 West.

In the event of adverse weather conditions or operational constraints, this work could be postponed.

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.

November 12 - Implementation of new traffic management on the Île-aux-Tourtes bridge

The Ministère des Transports informs road users that new traffic management will be implemented on the Île-aux-Tourtes bridge allowing three-lane traffic in both directions.

The right shoulder will be closed in each direction and the lanes will be diverted to the left. The set-up will first be eastbound during the weekend of November 13th and westbound the following weekend. Night closures of two out of three lanes, either direction, will be required during construction.

Traffic management

Eastbound (towards Montreal) - Starting Monday, November 16

  • Three open lanes
  • Right shoulder closed

Westbound (towards Vaudreuil-Dorion) - Starting Monday, November 23

  • Three open lanes
  • Right shoulder closed

At all times, trucks will be prohibited from driving in the right lane in both directions.

This second phase of the work undertaken last July consists of repairing the supports. These will run until the end of May 2021.

In the event of adverse weather conditions or operational constraints, these changes may be postponed. Note that the posted speed is reduced to 90 km / h at all times on Highway 40 in both directions, between the Chenaux viaduct and the Morgan viaduct.

In order to adequately plan your trips, find out about current and upcoming obstacles by consulting Québec 511.

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.

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.
