Turcot work to close Highway 20 East tonight

Friday morning rush hour will be more complicated for motorists coming out of the West Island.

Transport Quebec will close the ramp from Highway 20 eastbound to southbound Highway 15 and the Champlain Bridge at midnight Thursday.

The closure is to allow continued demolition of Turcot Interchange overpasses.

The ramp will re-open early Monday morning.

Motorists coming along eastbound Highway 20 are being advised to take the Mercier Bridge if they plan on heading to the south shore this weekend.
