Highway 40 (Île-aux-Tourtes Bridge)

The ministère des Transports, de la Mobilité durable et de l’Électrification des transports is informing users that a new work phase will begin to repair the Île-aux-Tourtes bridge on Highway 40 as of June 26, 2017 until the winter of 2018. The reason for the interventions is the repair of the beams in the westbound direction. Dynamic traffic management based on peak hour will be implemented using a removable barrier to limit the traffic impact.


Traffic Management - June 26, 2017 to the winter of 2018

Westbound (towards Vaudreuil-Dorion)

  • 3 lanes open between 2 pm and 7 pm on weekdays
  • 2 lanes opened outside this period
  • Trucks are forbidden in the left lane

 

Eastbound (towards Montreal)

  • 3 lanes open from midnight until noon and from 9 pm until 11:59 pm
  • 2 lanes opened outside this period

Note that the speed limit on the bridge will be reduced to 70 km / h.

In the event of unfavorable weather conditions or operational constraints, the begining of the work on the westbound direction could be postponed.
