Rock and road
Motorists heading westbound on Highway 40 over the Île-aux-Tourtes Bridge into Vaudreuil-Dorion should keep their eyes open for potentially large chunks of concrete left following the adjustment of the concrete barriers to accommodate eastbound morning rush hour traffic.
On two occasions within the last two weeks, a sizeable piece of concrete broken off from the base of a segment of the barrier was seen lying on the roadway. The photo above was taken Tuesday, October 25 around 10 a.m.
As of press time, Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ) spokesperson Nomba Danielle could not say if procedures are in place to either prevent a reoccurence or even to pick up the errant pieces. She did, however, say the MTQ will look into the issue.
