Please take note that during the weekend of March 16 to 19, the installation of the drainage network within the scope of the the New Champlain Bridge Corridor Project requires work in open tranches along the l’Île-des-Soeurs Boulevard. Furthermore, two structures located between the lanes of Highway 15 will be demolished.
The works require several traffic lanes closures in the Nun’s Island. See details below:
