The closures began on Claude-Léveillée Avenue in Terrebonne when the asphalt began to crack and break, leaving the road unsafe for drivers.

That was around 7 o'clock this morning and there was still no confirmation on when the road would re-open.

Traffic has not be allowed to travel westbound since this morning.
