Following its sudden closure April 29, work began June 3 on the Montée Cadieux overpass that traverses Highway 40 in Vaudreuil-Dorion between Route Harwood and Jean-Lesage Street.
“Repairs have begun using a projected concrete process to cover the reinforcement bars located under the bridge deck and on the eastern side of the bridge,” said the Quebec Ministry of Transport in a communiqué issued June 6.
The work is expected to take about five weeks and will reportedly allow for the full reopening of the overpass upon completion.
Westbound traffic on Highway 40 is reduced to one lane between the Toronto/Ottawa split and the Montée Cadieux overpass.
Transport Quebec is warning that work could be postponed in the event of adverse weather conditions.
