National Capital Region — The Champlain bridge will be closed for 3 nights, starting on August 16, between 10 pm and 5 am, in preparation for rehabilitation work. The bridge sidewalk will remain open for pedestrians.
As of August 17, at 6 am, the west lane of the bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic for rehabilitation work on the bridge until November 2022.
To minimize impact and disruption to active users and vehicular traffic, the work is being completed in phases and two lanes of traffic will be maintained throughout the work.
Cyclists and pedestrians will continue to have access to the bridge.
Motorists can expect delays as the open lanes will be narrower, and the maximum speed limit will be reduced to 40 km/h. Road signage will be in place.
The National Capital Commission urges users to exercise caution, respect working crews and equipment, and obey signage and flag persons on-site.
