This weekend marks the start of the annual construction holiday. For two weeks, many blue-collar and public sector workers will be on vacation, leaving their construction sites behind for a much-needed repose.\nWhat this means for Montreal drivers is a weekend of headaches since many construction projects will be running at full-tilt in anticipation for the holiday.\nGood thing for you drivers, we have the complete list of road closure and traffic detours to help you get through what is shaping up to be a difficult weekend on Montreal's roads.\nFor the most part, Montreal drivers should expect heavy congestion in the classic areas: the Turcot Interchange, the Bonaventure Expressway, and the Jacques Cartier Bridge. Closures and detours will paralyze these locations and drivers should plan ahead before they get stuck.\nFDS 19 juillet // Fermetures importantes dans l’échangeur Turcot.

Those trying to get into downtown from the South Shore might have to find an alternate route.\nBelow is the full list of detours and closures that will affect drivers in Montreal this weekend.\nView this post on Instagram Voici le dernier pilier du cœur de l’échangeur Turcot.

Where a concrete overpass once loomed now stand hundreds of saplings, about five football fields’ worth of public green space, thousands of perennials and shrubs, rain gardens, exercise equipment, a fenced-in children’s play area, two large pieces of public art, seven ground-level traffic lanes for cars, and two dedicated bus lanes. (Swipe right above to see the results!) The vision and purpose of #ProjetBonaventure was threefold: to create a prestigious and user-friendly entrance to downtown, mesh together disparate neighborhoods, and support urban development. There are other benefits, too. The green space will help reduce the heat island effect in the area, and might make the neighborhood more palatable to condo buyers. And the sculptures that dot the main park are sure to excite passing visitors. Read more about the transit-focused city renewal via the link in our bio.
