The Montée Cadieux overpass connecting Route Harwood and Jean-Lesage Street has reopened following repair work on the concrete.
Following its abrupt closure April 29, the two-lane Montée Cadieux overpass traversing Highway 40 in Vaudreuil-Dorion between Route Harwood and Jean-Lesage Street reopened June 28.
Though the closure was originally said to be for an indefinite period, and was later revised to a six-week timeframe, its reopening was a few days earlier than anticipated.
“The work went very well,” said Ministère des Transports du Québec Spokesperson Isabelle Buisson. “That’s why we were able to reopen so soon.”
Described as a ‘preventative’ measure, the closure came after an analysis conducted in mid-April revealed concrete delamination caused by the effects of the freeze-thaw cycle on the interior rebar. Repair work addressed the zone of compromised concrete.
Transport Qubec said the 51-year-old structure carries about 200 cars per day.
