This Montreal Map Proves That The City Is Fvcked

This Montreal Map Proves That The City Is Fvcked

I used to live downtown back when I worked near the Airport in Dorval, so I'm not stranger to traffic. But recently traffic has just been completely out of control.

2 weeks ago I was trying to make my way from Decarie to Saint-Laurent street which would normally take 20 minutes but it took me close to an hour and a half. I could have driven to Mont-Tremblant in less time.

Checking the Montreal construction won't help either because there simply aren't any alternate routes left to take.

Take a look, everything is under construction and basically Montreal is fucked.

In fact I've thought of 3 new slogans for Montreal:

  • Montreal: We're busy, come back next year
  • Montreal: aka Lego Land Jr.

or my personal favorite:

  • Coming Soon: Montreal

And it's going to get exponentially worse during the next 2 weekends.

That's because the city will start the demolition of the St. Jacques Street Bridge, a project that's only 3 years late.

And although construction is supposed to take place after 10:00 pm, Transport Quebec is asking drivers to avoid Highway 15 altogether for the next 2 weekends according to CTV.

Here are all the new closures you can expect:

  • Highway 15 southbound between Sherbrooke and the Turcot interchange
  • The Royalmount entrance to Highway 15
  • The Jean-Talon entrance to Highway 15
  • The Cote-St-Luc entrance to Highway 15
  • The Girouard entrance to Highway 15
  • The Exit ramp for the Champlain bridge on Highway40

Transport Quebec recommends drivers use Highway 13 as an alternate route.
