Getting around the Island of Montreal this Thanksgiving weekend will be complicated by scheduled road work and no service on the RMT's Deux-Montagnes train line.
The train line will be out of service Saturday, Sunday and Monday to allow crews to proceed with repairs to the Cornwall Bridge in Town of Mount Royal and other parts of the track.
The train's operator, the Réseau de transport métropolitain, is not providing bus service along the line and is encouraging users to use its trip planner website to plan alternative routes.
The following road closures will also be in effect over the Thanksgiving weekend:
The bridge was supposed to be down to one lane in each direction until Tuesday at 5 a.m., but the work ended early and all lanes have been reopened.
The ramps from Highway 20 East and Highway 15 South to Highway 136 East will be closed starting Friday at 11:59 p.m. until Tuesday at 5 a.m.
Highway 136 eastbound will be completely closed from the Turcot Interchange up to the entrance from de la Cathédrale and Notre-Dame streets starting Friday at 11:59 p.m. until Tuesday at 5 a.m.
The de la Cathédrale / Notre-Dame entrance will be open and drivers can use the Ville-Marie Tunnel from there.
Glen Road will be closed between St-Jacques Street West and Ste-Catherine Street starting Friday at 8 p.m. until Tuesday at 5 a.m.
Ville Saint-Pierre Interchange
Highway 20 East will be down to one lane between the Ville Saint-Pierre Interchange in Lachine and Angrignon Boulevard starting Friday at 11 p.m. until Sunday at 11:59 p.m.
Exit 64 for Angrignon Boulevard and St-Jacques Street will be closed until Sunday at 11:59 p.m.
