Motorists will have to be patient to take one of the two inter-rivers in the Quebec region. The Quebec Ministry of Transport and Sustainable Mobility conducts major work there for most of the summer.
Ramps from Autoroute Henri-IV to Boulevard Champlain and from Boulevard Champlain to Autoroute Henri-IV southbound will be closed June 27 through August 10, inclusive.
According to MTQ, the culvert on Boulevard Champlain is being reconstructed, and these restrictions will be in place during the holidays.
“This intervention is planned in a project to redevelop the interchanges north of the Pierre-Laporte and Quebec bridges,” spokeswoman Emily Lord explained in a press release.
A long detour
These major obstacles force users to take several detours to navigate the sector, especially for those wishing to travel from Henri-IV Highway to Champlain Boulevard.
According to the route proposed by the MTQ, they should cross the Pierre-Laporte bridge and take the Route des Rivières at Lévis, five kilometers away. They have to take the car link again to access the exit to the boulevard.
The Ministry of Transport has therefore urged motorists to “choose an alternative route for their journeys” to avoid work zones.
