Weekend closures and a new look for the Turcot Interchange come Monday

Drivers, take note — starting Monday, the configuration of Highway 20 East in the Turcot Interchange is going to look a little different.

Drivers, take note — starting Monday, the configuration of Highway 20 East in the Turcot Interchange is going to look a little different.

Right now, motorists heading downtown stay in the two middle lanes to access Route 136 east. Come Monday, they will have to stay in the left lane.

If you're going to the Décarie Expressway, you'll have to stay in the middle lane instead of the left lane.

And it's business as usual if you're heading to Highway 15 South — keep right.

The new configuration will be in place until the beginning of 2018, according to the Transport Ministry.
