Construction of the Lachine Canal Bridge by KPH Turcot

Montréal (Quebec), March 18, 2016 – Construction of the Lachine Canal Bridge’s foundations will begin this spring. The work will be carried out by KPH Turcot as part of the reconstruction work of the Turcot Interchange. This major project will require the closure of the southern (March 2016) and northern (Fall 2016) sections of the Lachine Canal’s path situated under Autoroute 15.

As of March 14, 2016, the section of the path located between Côte-Saint-Paul Bridge and Eadie Street will be inaccessible. Pedestrians and cyclists will be invited to use the George-Étienne-Cartier Footbridge to access the path on the north side of the Lachine Canal.
