Champlain Corridor: CONFIRMATION of BLITZ 4 work weekend on June 29 & 30

BREAKING NEWS: Weekend Work completed in the Champlain Corridor, all lanes opened back around 1 a.m. on Monday, July 1st in both directions.

Fourth weekend of work only on the A-15 and île des Sœurs Bridge

We would like to CONFIRM that the fourth weekend work BLITZ in the Champlain Corridor will resume starting Saturday, June 29 at 00:30 a.m.* (night of Friday to Saturday) until Monday, July 1, at 9 a.m. following its postponement due to adverse weather conditions.

While we did not originally plan to target this long weekend for work, weather conditions and other work on the network unfortunately require us to use this particular weekend. As a result, we recommend using the Bonaventure Expressway to access or exit the Champlain Bridge, in order to avoid the A-15 worksite on the Montreal side. Traffic may become more difficult at around 10 a.m.; therefore, morning or late afternoon departures are recommended.

* The closure will begin after the reopening of the Jacques Cartier Bridge closed on Friday night for La Ronde fireworks from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.

This fourth BLITZ will take place only on the A-15 and the île des Sœurs Bridge, as main major work planned this year for the Champlain Bridge was completed in the first three work BLITZES.

Using the Bonaventure Expressway is an excellent option to consider if you want to avoid the A-15 worksite when accessing or exiting the Champlain Bridge.

For the weekend, the installation of road signs on the A-15 will begin Friday night around 11:30 p.m. towards the North and South, causing the closure of a first lane.

Here is the lane configuration for the weekend:

  • A-15: a single lane going North and South at the entrance to the Champlain Bridge on the Montreal side until Atwater (including the île des Sœurs Bridge)

It is important to note that during this period the width of lanes on the A-15 will be reduced to three metres in both directions. Trucks exceeding this width will have to take alternative routes.

Drivers are encouraged to avoid the Champlain Corridor and take the Jacques Cartier, Victoria or Honoré Mercier Bridges, or the Louis Hippolyte Lafontaine Bridge-Tunnel, to access or leave the Island of Montreal.

The speed limit on the network will be reduced to 50 km/h.

Access and exit ramps closures during the weekend

For l’île des Soeurs residents, only Exit 57-S of A-15 South (towards Champlain) will be closed, all other access and exits will be opened. The detour will be possible via Exit 57-N of A-15 South (next Exit after 57-S).

Towards the South Shore, on A-15, Exit 60 will be closed to trafic, we invite you to take Atwater Exit (Exit 61) located before.

Police will also be present along the optional detour on St-Patrick Street, to improve the traffic flow.

The access ramp to the Champlain Bridge from Gaétan-Laberge Street in Verdun will be closed and also the access ramp from the Bonaventure Expressway (Exit 4) to the A-15 South. All the details on the map below.
