Traffic Pedestrians and cyclists
State of the road network
*Estimated hours, road signage has priority
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.
Cyclists using the Seaway dike bicycle path near the construction site, where the main pylon is erected, can also expect, ponctual long term closures from summer 2017 until the end of the works.
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.
2019 CYCLING SEASON ON THE SEAWAY DIKE
For the 2019 cycling season, Signature on the Saint Lawrence will maintain the bicycle path on the Seaway dike between the Saint-Lambert Locks and the Champlain Bridge ice control structure for most of this period.
To ensure the safety of pedestrians and cyclists in this section of the dike, and despite the fact that work is being done at height, a protected corridor has been created along the work site. Please use this corridor at all times and follow instructions next to the corridor.
During high-risk work, Signature on the Saint Lawrence will occasionally need to temporarily close the bicycle path on the Seaway dike on both sides of the existing Champlain Bridge for safety reasons until the new bridge is opened.
These closures will be communicated 24 hours ahead of time on our Twitter account, insofar as possible, as well as through e-mail alerts sent to the mailing list. To sign up for the list, please send your e-mail to the following link.
Three signs have also been set up at strategic locations to communicate the information ahead of time. While travelling by bicycle, please keep an eye out for the dates and times regarding future closures.
Thank you for your cooperation and have a safe cycling season.
