Long weekend means lots of road closures

It's Labour day weekend, and among those who'll be labouring this weekend — construction workers.

And once again, the Turcot Interchange will be a busy place.

Getting onto the eastbound Ville-Marie Expressway will be a challenge — the ramps from both Hwy. 15 south and Hwy. 20 west to Hwy. 136 east will be completely closed all weekend, starting Friday night at 11:59 p.m.

Notre-Dame St. will also be closed in both direction between Monk Blvd. and St. Remi St.

Meanwhile, the ramp from eastbound Hwy. 138 from the Mercier Bridge to the eastbound 20 will be completely closed between Friday at 11 p.m. right through the long weekend, while the eastbound 20 itself will be down from three lanes to just one between the St. Pierre interchange and Angrignon Blvd.

In Verdun, exit 60 on Hwy. 15 south for Wellington St. and De l'Eglise Ave. will be shut down starting on Friday at 11 p.m.

And on the Jacques-Cartier Bridge, the ramp onto the bridge from Taschereau Blvd. closes on Friday night at 10 p.m., and will be shut down until Monday at 5 a.m. — along with the east and west ramps for Hwy. 132. The 132 in Brossard will also lose two of three lanes between Friday night at 10 p.m. and Monday at 1 a.m.
