This will close the South Shorebound Honoré Mercier Bridge to traffic until 5 a.m. Monday. However, one lane remains open toward Montreal.

By default, traffic entering Rue Airlie to join the R-138 West is diverted via Avenue Lafleur and Rue Clément. Boulevard Lasalle will also be closed between Avenues Lafleur and Trésor-Caché.

Also, motorists must plan for the full closure of the Pie IX Bridge in both directions between Montreal and Laval throughout the weekend. This means that the Boulevard de la Concorde Est entrance leading to the R-125 Sud and the East and West entrances to Boulevard Henri-Bourassa to the R-125 North are inaccessible.

Those taking Hickmore Street above the A-13 between 23rd Avenue and Fisher Street will also need to plan an alternate route: the road is closed in both directions through Monday morning.

On the Laval side, the A-440 West service road between Industrial Boulevard and the A-15 will be closed to traffic throughout the weekend.

Finally, on the South Shore, the A-20 West service road will be closed at the Boucherville exit to the A-30 East.

Mobility Montreal warns that these sectors should be avoided as much as possible.
