Île-aux-Tourtes Bridge to see overnight closures starting Wednesday

Montrealers can expect some road delays over the next few nights around the Île-aux-Tourtes Bridge.

Quebec’s Transport Ministry says the bridge that links Senneville and Vaudreuil-Dorion along Highway 40 (Félix-Leclerc) will be completely closed during the nights and weekend from May 22 to 27.

The closure is to accommodate the installation of new lane configurations on Highway 40, to allow for the construction of a new bridge.

What will be closed

There will be a complete closure of Highway 40, between exit 41 (Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue/des Anciens-Combattants Blvd./A-20 West/Île Perrot) and the entrance from Saint-Charles Avenue for westbound traffic, and between exit 35 (Vaudreuil-sur-le-Lac/Vaudreuil-Dorion/Av. St-Charles) and the entrance from Des Anciens-Combattants Boulevard for eastbound traffic.

Access to Senneville Road will be available for westbound traffic.

Detour signs will be placed along the routes to help guide drivers.

When it will be closed

The closures will begin Wednesday night at 11:59 p.m., before being reopened at 5 a.m. on Thursday. This will repeat Thursday into Friday.

Friday at 11:59 p.m., the road will close again until Monday at 5 a.m.

An additional closure will take place on May 31 for drainage work.

May 27

As of Monday, May 27, dynamic traffic management will return to the area, which will make two of the three lanes in the direction of traffic available during peak periods — to Montreal from midnight to 10 a.m. on weekdays and to Vaudreuil-Dorion from noon to 10 p.m. on weekdays, as well as every weekend.
