Hurry up and wait: A list of long weekend road closures in Montreal

If you commute in and around the city by car, your long weekend adventures may be a tad complicated.
It's going to be… interesting to get around in a car. How interesting, you ask? Well, below is a list of everything that is closed.
Basically, if you are heading to the South Shore, take the Jacques-Cartier Bridge. If you are driving through the Turcot, take an Advil and be prepared to sit around.
Everything will reopen Tuesday at 5 a.m. unless otherwise specified.
