Jacques Cartier Bridge multipurpose path and sidewalk

>> CLOSED FOR THE WINTER SEASON

Due to the weather conditions already settled the multiporpuse path and the sidewalk on the Jacques Cartier Bridge will again be closing this year for the winter season on December 5.

They will open again in spring 2015.

The bike path located on the West side of the Jacques Cartier Bridge has officially opened for the 2014 season on April 4. The closure of the bike path for the WINTER PERIOD is not scheduled for a specific date. We keep the path open for as long as possible, until weather conditions make its access difficult or unsafe.

2014 work is now finished. This was the last phase of work required to reconfigure the geometry of the Boulevard Taschereau West exit and rehabilitate the southern approach of the bike path.

Champlain Bridge Ice Control Structure bike path

Estacade-bikepathWork is completed! These latest closures allowed workers to completely repave the ice control structure, an operation that has not been done since its inauguration in 1966. This is a significant facelift for the structure.

Lachine Canal bike path under the Bonaventure Expressway in Montreal

We would like to inform cyclists that the section of the Lachine Canal bike path that passes underneath the Bonaventure Expressway will be closed beginning November 14, 2014. This closure will allow to finish major rehabilitation work planned for this year on the federal section of the Bonaventure Expressway.

During these periods, cyclists will be invited to use a detour set up on the Wellington Street Bridge via the existing bike path network. See below map of the detour.

We invite cyclists and pedestrians to use caution when nearing the large-scale worksite.
