Major overnight closures to Decarie begin tonight

If you're a night owl and find yourself on the road in Montreal overnight you'll want to avoid the southbound side of the Decarie Expressway until the end of the summer.

Transport Quebec will be repaving the Highway which will cause the partial or complete closure of the southbound Expressway starting at 10:00 P.M. until 5:00 A.M. on a nightly basis. It is possible the Expressway will be closed for a couple weekends.

Crews will also be doing repair work on Route 117 (Marcel-Laurin Blvd.) and Decarie Blvd. near the stretch of the Expressway that will be closed.

The north side will remain untouched, this year. Resurfacing work on that side of the Expressway is only scheduled to begin in 2020.
