Montreal Roads Are Going To Be Paralyzed This Weekend

Beautiful spring weather and festival season go hand in hand in Montreal. But you know what else goes together with Spring like PB&J in Montreal is construction.

We live in Canada and the ground is frozen solid a good 6-months out of the year. To the frustration and dismay of the citizens, as soon as the earth thaws out in spring, the city is quick to bust out the drills and shovels and get dinging.

At least the city provides us with tons of great tools and resources to be able to plan ahead for the weekend. For example, they provide Montrealers with this online interactive map to show you exactly where you can expect construction work to be happening around the island.

Also, you can consult Transport Quebec's site and they have a specific section that is updated regularly to show you exactly where there is work in progress on some of the busiest intersection for commuters coming into the city.

That said, here are the specific roads that will be blocked this weekend:

  • Highway 15 northbound between Exit 63 and the entrance from Sherbrooke, as well as from De La Verendrye Blvd.
  • The Highway 136 West ramp to Highway 15 North.
  • The ramp from Highway 20 East to Highway 15 North.
  • The ramp from Highway 15 South to Highway 136 East and West.
  • De Courcelle/Glen between St-Jacques and Ste-Catherine West.
  • Notre-Dame West between Monk and Cote-St-Paul.

All closures are in effect from Friday night to 5:00 a.m. Monday morning.

Lastly, the Mercier Bridge towards Montreal will be reduced to one lane of traffic between 2:00 a.m. on Saturday to 5:00 a.m. on Monday.
