As of last Monday morning, traffic was crawling along NDG’s Upper Lachine Road while several police officers tried to impose some kind of working order around busy intersections located throughout the CDN/NDG borough’s already busy hospital district.
As of last Monday, the traffic cones were already up as MTQ work crews once again closed the access ramp leading off the east-bound 20 onto the even busier Décarie Expressway.
According to the MTQ’s own press release, repair work is expected to take up to three months after which the ramp is expected to be once again open in time for the city’s late July construction holiday.
As work will proceed on both access ramps over the next three months, anyone who wants to take what is still one of the busiest bridges in all of North America must now head west along the Ville Marie Expressway toward Angrignon (near the LaSalle exit) where they can take their place in line, wait for the light, take a left and make their way along eastbound Highway 20 towards the southbound Highway 15 access ramp that will lead them to the bridge.
MTQ officials also mentioned that for the duration of the work schedule, commuters would be well advised to use any kind of alternative transport in order to make their way in and out of the city.
