Editorial policy

Welcome to the platform for the Samuel De Champlain Bridge—where you can find all the news there is about this major construction project.

The primary goal of this platform is to explain and present the construction, operation and maintenance of the corridor of the Samuel De Champlain Bridge to the public and to be a reference point for day-to-day information on the project. The platform is used on a daily basis to describe and share information about the progress of the project, inform motorists about its impact on traffic, inform pedestrians and cyclists about the multi-use path and tell local residents about other impacts and mitigation measures,

This website will also provide a platform for people to express their opinions about the project and our various publications. Whether you want to ask a question, share your thoughts or comment on one of our posts, we care about your opinion.


Besides presenting the project, obstacles, news and phases of the work being done, we also want this site to serve as a hub for learning more about one of North America’s largest present-day construction project. To help you find your way around and access the information you are looking for, we have prepared the following sections to give you a better understanding of the project and how it will affect you.
