Here's how this summer's roadwork in Montreal will affect you
It's almost summer and you know what that means — more roadwork in the Montreal area.
Just over 40 roadwork projects are scheduled to begin or continue this summer, with some finishing this year and some only ending in a few years from now.
Some roadwork projects include:
• Côte-St-Luc between Decarie and Bonavista starting July 6 until November;
• Van Horne between Decarie and Victoria for the next two years;
• St. Denis between Jarry and Faillon for the next two years;
• paving work on Decarie South between the 40 and Sherbrooke;
• Maintenance work on the l'île-aux-Tourtes Bridge;
• paving work between the l'île-aux-Tourtes Bridge and Boulevard des Anciens-Combattants.
One of the biggest headaches will be the Decarie North in the Turcot Interchange: only two of three lanes will be open between St. Jacques and the NDG Tunnel from July until November. To complicate matters, both the exit and entrance ramps from Sherbrooke will be closed; the ramp to get onto Decarie North will only reopen in mid-September and the ramp to get onto Sherbrooke from Decarie will only reopen at the end of October.
All the closures on Decarie North are to make way for reconstruction work.
The KPH Turcot consortium handling the work on the interchange is offering some good news: the St. Jacques overpass and Highway 20E between Montreal West and Turcot should reopen by the end of the year.
One of the big headaches(see that red hotspot in the middle?): Decarie N btwn St. Jacques & NDG Tunnel down to two lanes btwn July & November AND Sherbrooke ramps to get on & off Decarie N will be closed, reopening only in mid-Sept./end of Oct.
