Weekend Traffic: Expect checkpoints and roadwork if you feel like driving

Traffic -closures (CTV News)

With police manning checkpoints in Quebec, COVID-19 numbers surging and major construction projects underway, parking may be wiser than driving this weekend.

Major work is scheduled on a number of highways, interchanges and the Samuel-de Champlain Bridge in Brossard.

Avoiding these areas is a good idea.
