Overnight snow-related accidents complicating traffic on highways

The hazardous road conditions and challenging visibility brough by the overnight snowstorm seems to have contributed to overnight accidents that are presenting difficulties for drivers on major roadways across Greater Montreal, especially on the Metropolitan and Decarie expressways.

Though Transport Quebec suspended all planned roadwork operations overnight due to the snowfall, accidents and otherwise disabled vehicles have still forced lane closures at various times throughout the night.  Closures were reported at various times overnight along Highway 40 in Vaudreuil-Dorion, at the interchange with Highway 15, and near l'Assomption.  

Closer to downtown Montreal, closures were also reported later in the overnight hours on the Decarie Expressway.
