This work will inevitably lead to traffic jams, but everything will be done to limit the inconvenience to motorists, assured Chantal Rawley, Minister of Transport and Minister in charge of the Metropolis and Montreal area.

“We can say for sure that there will be obstacles and orange cones, but we have no other way to work,” she said. We have to meet the infrastructure management deficit. ”
