February 10, 2014, Longueuil, Que. – The Jacques Cartier and
Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) announced that construction work on a
new viaduct, which is necessary as part of the new Île des Sœurs Bypass Bridge
project, will require the access ramp from the Bonaventure Expressway to the
Champlain Bridge to be reduced to one lane.

This lane reduction will begin Thursday, February 13 and
last approximately four months.

Currently, road users coming from the Bonaventure Expressway
heading towards the Champlain Bridge use the Clément Bridge, followed by an
access ramp that runs beneath the A-15, to reach the Champlain Bridge. This
ramp has two lanes converting into one at the entrance to A-15 South towards
the Champlain Bridge.

Advertisment

This access ramp will, however, be reduced faster to one
lane for the next four months. As a result, traffic will be heavier to access
the Champlain Bridge from the Bonaventure Expressway.

Road users who wish to access Île des Sœurs may use Exit 4
of the Bonaventure Expressway in order to access the island via the A-15 South,
followed by the Île des Sœurs Bridge, to avoid heavier traffic on Bonaventure
Expressway.

As well, please note that, as of Tuesday, February 18,
traffic on Chemin de la Pointe Nord between the traffic circle at the entrance
to Île des Sœurs and Pointe Nord will be reduced to one lane heading east under
the Île des Sœurs Bridge.

A yield sign will be installed for motorists coming from
Exit 57-N on the A-15 South, in order to facilitate alternating traffic with
residents of Île des Sœurs coming from the traffic circle.
