Commuting by car in our area will be a little more difficult for the foreseeable future as the Chemin des Chenaux overpass on the 40 in Vaudreuil has been closed indefinitely.
The 53 year-old structure has been under load restrictions for almost a year and last June, a dump truck with its bed up on the Eastbound 40 ran into the bridge.
A recent inspection turned up defects that affect overpass’s load bearing capacity.
Transport Quebec says motorists passing under the overpass on the 40 are not in any danger.
There are marked detours in place.
They are :
Northbound: Cité-des-Jeunes, Saint-Charles Avenue, Dumberry Road
Southbound: Dumberry Road, Saint-Charles Avenue, Cité-des-Jeunes
