Work blitzes on Jacques Cartier Bridge, other spans could impact your drive this summer

Annual work on Montreal's bridges that's about to get underway could impact your drive in and out of town for the rest of the year.

The main project is the repaving and levelling of the Jacques Cartier Bridge. The work that begins in June will mean ramp and lane closures over the course of several nights and weekend blitzes including the Fête nationale and Canada Day long weekends.

The long weekends were chosen strategically to provide an extra day of work and an extra day for motorists to plan to get in and out of town. Work will also be done during two blitzes Sunday to Tuesday during the construction holiday.

Other work:

- Bonaventure Expressway: levelling and repaving and concrete repairs will result in several complete night closures of exit and access ramps and two weekend blitzes that will close access ramps

- Mercier Bridge: painting of the steel structure, inspection work and construction of an inspection platform will mean 5 complete night closures in one direction and 12 complete night closures of some access ramps
