Montreal Road Closures Are Going To Be So Bad This Weekend You Might As Well Stay Home

The construction holiday is not over quite yet. Traffic and road closures are currently at an all-time high, causing everyone to lose their minds right about now. This is probably a really good weekend to explore what the city has to offer within walking distance, because at this rate trying to drive anywhere in the city that isn't congested and full of major back-ups is completely impossible.

This holiday is the busiest time of the year in the city, and although the two-week-long living hell is almost over, it seriously does not look like it. Your best bet is to cancel any travelling for now, but if you really need to get on the road you'll want some help navigating around the worst areas in the city. Just make sure you leave for your trip extra early if you want to make it on time.
