The Chemin des Chenaux bridge will be rebuilt
After analyzing the feasibility of different reconstruction or rebuilding scenarios, the Ministère des Transports chose the option of rebuilding the Chemin des Chenaux overpass bridge over Highway 40 in Vaudreuil-Dorion.
Several steps are required prior to the reconstruction, such as the removal of utility equipment, the dismantling of the bridge, the design of the structure, the preparation of plans and specifications for the new bridge and the call for tenders. According to the preliminary schedule, construction work on the new bridge could begin in 2021.
Since the bridge remains closed until reconstruction, a 5 km detour is set up and a special shuttle is available for transit users. The Ministry regrets this situation and thanks the population and its partners for their understanding and patience.
