Work is to begin on the new Champlain Bridge next year, according to a detailed timeline unveiled mid January 2014.
Big dilemma and most talk these days are that are we going to have a toll on the new bridge or not? Also most of Nuns’ Island residence are worried about the work which what they need to know, if they will effected or not?
Some of the answers are below:
“Transport Canada official Vincent Jarry said Ottawa does not know what impact having tolls on only one bridge will have on other spans. “We’re still working on that,” he said.”
The construction project includes:
A new Champlain Bridge between Brossard and Nuns’ Island (3.4 kilometres).
Highway 10 approaches to the Champlain, in Brossard.
Highway work on Nuns’ Island.
A new 470-metre Nuns’ Island bridge (between Nuns’ Island and Montreal).
