MONTREAL -- Guess what's closing this weekend?

Roads.

Between Friday Oct. 11 just before midnight and Monday morning at 5 a.m., avoiding the Turcot Interchange may not be a bad idea, as the Ville-Marie Expressway will be closed in each direction and Highway 20 will be closed heading west.  Come next week there will be a few new entrances opening, while one very notable road will be narrowed.

Ville-Marie Expressway (Highway 720)

  • The Ville-Marie Expressway (Highway 720) east and west will be completely closed from the Ville Marie tunnel to the Turcot Interchange all weekend.

Highway 20

  • Highway 20 westbound will be completely closed between the Turcot Interchange and the entrance from Sainte-Anne-de Bellevue Blvd all weekend.

Ramps opening/road narrowing

As of Monday, Oct. 14 at 5 a.m.:

  • One lane going from the Ville-Marie Expressway (Highway 720) to Highway 20 through the Turcot Interchange will be closed until early November.
  • The Lucien-L'Allier and Fort Street entrances to the Ville-Marie Expressway (Highway 720) will reopen.
  • The temporary Rose-de-Lima St. entrance from St. Antoine to the Ville-Marie Expressway will close permanently.  

 

 

Gaetan Laberge Blvd. closed

Crews will be repaving Gaetan Laberge Blvd. this weekend.

To do that, the downtown-bound lanes from just north of Highway 15 will be closed from midnight Friday until 5 a.m. Tuesday Oct. 15.

Drivers will have to detour via Highway 15 south, then drive through Nuns' Island until they can get on the inbound Highway 10.
