Traffic Pedestrians and cyclists
State of the road network
NB : In connection with the construction of the new Champlain Bridge, Signature on the Saint Lawrence advises users that traffic on La Riveraine bicycle path will be diverted beginning on October 19, 2015. This detour will be maintained throughout the entire construction period, until 2019.
A safe, practical multi-use path will be built on the new Champlain Bridge for use by cyclists, pedestrians and runners. The path will provide a direct connection between Montreal and Brossard, with access to Nuns’ Island. Note that the project, once completed, will enhance and consolidate the existing bike network as well as its scenic views.
Due to safety concerns, we have been forced to close the Pointe-Nord section of the bike path on Nuns’ Island next to the construction site until work on the new bridge is completed.
Cyclists using the Seaway dike bicycle path near the construction site can also expect to encounter signallers, who will be slowing bike traffic for short periods in the summer of 2016 to allow safe crossing of the adjacent area, where lifting work is set to take place. This section will shut down completely in 2017 and reopen once construction is done.
Signature on the Saint Lawrence is working directly with municipal authorities and Vélo-Québec, among others, to keep users informed of cycling links, safe detours, closures and re-openings. Signage is also being put up in high-visibility locations, where necessary.
