Traffic exiting l'Île-des-Soeurs

July 17, 2009

Dear Residents:

I would like to report on the situation that we have been facing at rush hours, for the past few days, at the entrances and exits of L’Île-des-Sœurs. 

Major roadwork is under way at the present time in order to double the access and thereby improve the flow of traffic at the entrances and exits of the island. Although we have done our utmost to keep inconveniences to a minimum during this crucial phase of the work, I must admit that the impacts are greater than what we had anticipated. In fact, it was to minimize the negative effects that we had planned this phase during the summer—a time of year when traffic on the road system is generally lighter.

Following the heavy traffic congestion last week, due to incidents on the upper level highway network, we met with the main parties concerned and agreed on additional measures to alleviate the situation. It seems that they are successful, as we have noted an improvement to the situation. However, we are not sheltered from other sudden glitches that might occur between now and the end of this phase of the work, which is expected to be completed by mid-August.

As for residents' safety, it wasn't jeopardized at any time. Our emergency plan, set up a few years ago, in fact makes it possible for specialized vehicles to access and leave the island within the required periods of time.

The major work now under way will have an impact on traffic for another few weeks. I am therefore appealing to your usual cooperation and patience to help us get through this difficult phase. As a L’Île-des-Soeurs resident, I can assure you that once all this work is finished, we will be far better off as a result.
Claude Trudel,
Borough Mayor

Detour to Keep in Mind in Exiting L’Île-des-Soeurs

Verdun, July 6, 2009 — La Société des ponts Jacques-Cartier et Champlain inc. has informed us that due to the continuation of work to improve the entrances and exits of L’Île-des-Sœurs, access to Autoroute Bonaventure via Clément bridge will be closed from 10 p.m. on July 10 to July 29 inclusively.

Motorists leaving the island to go downtown will therefore have to take exit 60 off Autoroute 15-N, a slight detour of approximately 0.6 km. Signs to this effect will be installed.

The Verdun Borough thanks residents for their cooperation while the work is under way to improve the network of entrance and exit roads in the L’Île-des-Sœurs neighbourhood.
