Traffic Warning: Major Montreal Road Closures Will Immobilize The City This Weekend

New major closures to know about.

Another weekend in Montreal, which means another traffic jam to navigate. Just because it's winter, doesn't mean construction is stopping.

TL;DR Some of the new and major road closures happening this weekend. Mostly on the Turcot interchange which is undergoing construction this weekend. 

Some major construction is being done on the Turcot interchange, so there are several temporary closures going down this weekend only. 

The Turcot Exchange Twitter feed released some colorful images to help Montrealers navigate the crazy spaghetti twists, which will be way more complicated this weekend.

Be mindful, some roads are only closed down for parts of the weekend, while other will be totally shut down all weekend long until Monday.
