Jacques Cartier Bridge multipurpose path and sidewalk

OPENING OF THE 2015 sEASON

May 12, 2015 Update – The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) inform the public that the multipurpose path (including the bike path) located on the West side of the Jacques Cartier Bridge will be closed during the night of tuesday May 12, wednesday May 13 and thursday May 14, between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.

The East side sidewalk is open. The section between St-Charles stairway and Ste-Hélène Island will remain closed until the end of the work done on the steel section of the bridge.

Ongoing work on the Jacques Cartier Bridge. Despite ongoing work on the section directly above the Seaway, a corridor has been cleared to enable users to cross the bridge. Because the corridor is narrow to 1,5 meter, users are reminded when the path will be opened to SLOW DOWN and BE COURTEOUS AND CAUTIOUS.

OPENING: The multipurpose path and sidewalk do not have a set opening date. Before opening them, we must first ensure that there is no further risk of snow or freezing temperatures and complete spring cleaning.

CLOSURE: The multipurpose path and sidewalk do not have a set closure date. They will remain open until the weather no longer permits safe use.

INFORMATION: To receive notices of annual openings and closures of the multipurpose path and sidewalk, email us at communications@pjcci.ca
All notices of obstructions and partial, temporary, and long-term closures are published in this section. Check it regularly or follow us on Twitter!
