The Eastbound Ville Marie from the Turcot interchange to the Guy Street exit officially closed at five o’clock this morning and is slated for demolition.
Traffic coming from Eastbound Highway 20 and Southbound Highway 15 is being funneled into the two lanes of the new Highway 136.
The 136 expansion to four lane won’t be completed until 2018.
In an attempt to alleviate some of the congestion, a shuttle bus will run from the AMT Park and Ride lot in St. Laurent to the du College Metro Station.
It will run every 15 minutes between 6:30 A.M. & 9:30 A.M. and from 3:30 P.M. to 6:30 P.M.
Transport Quebec is urging commuters to use public transportation and leave their cars at home.
