If you use the Ile-aux-Tourtes bridge on a regular basis this shouldn’t surprise you.
Work on the bridge is late and over budget.
It seems the repairs are more complicated than originally thought and according to Transport Quebec some materials were late in being delivered.
Those factors have pushed up the cost of the repairs by about 3 Million Dollars from the original 4.4 Million Dollar estimate.
Photo Radar on the span is still in place though and it is raking in about $20,000 a day.
According to the Transport Ministry the work is supposed to be finished by the end of the year, however they didn’t say which year.
