Despite another chunk of concrete appearing on Highway 40 westbound the morning of October 31 immediately after the movable concrete barrier on the Île-aux-Tourtes Bridge was reconfigured, the Ministère des Transports du Québec will not confirm it’s the result of their machinery.

As reported in the October 27 Your Local Journal, motorists heading westbound 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 three occasions within the last two and a half weeks, a sizeable piece of concrete has remained on the roadway immediately after the lane change.

In a follow-up call November 2, MTQ spokesperson Nomba Danielle said the ministry could not confirm if the concrete did, indeed, come from their equipment but are still in the process of investigating the reported incidents.

Until such time as the report is concluded, motorists heading westbound over the bridge after the morning rush hour period should be vigilant for roadway obstructions.
