There are two entrances that are finally re-opening on the Turcot Interchange in Montreal, which is great news for all of you commuters out there.\nThere will also be some lane closures on the new Autoroute 720 (autoroute 136) westbound.\nDetails below!\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nThe construction on the Turcot Interchange in Montreal, and its associated headaches, have been a part of the reality of our city for some time, now. So much so that the news of two entrances re-opening this morning may feel to some like a hoax, a sham, a total fake news.\nBut, no, dear doubter. I understand your hesitation to believe such great news and I'm here to assure you that this time, the news is real.\nCrews were hard at work the past couple days, hence all the Turcot Interchange and associated highway closures this past Thanksgiving weekend.\nThe Autoroutes 20 and 720 (Ville-Marie Expressway) both saw their share of closures this weekend, with the 720 being closed in both directions, and the 20 being closed westbound from the Turcot Interchange through to into the city.\nBut Monday morning at around 5 a.m., crews at the Turcot Interchange managed to re-open two entrances heading into the city, meaning the commute into Montreal just got a little less stressful.\nParticularly if your commute includes either one of these two entrances onto the Ville-Marie Expressway.\nThough all lanes but one from the 720 to the 20 will be closed starting this week until November, we have two entrance openings to be happy about here in Montreal.\nAlerte Turcot - Du 14 octobre jusqu’au début novembre 2019 // 🚨 Fermeture partielle de la R-136 (A-720) / A-20 ouest dans l’échangeur #Turcot.
