As part of the REM work on the West Island, a segment of Highway 40 West will be completely closed from Friday, October 30 at 11:00 p.m. until Monday, November 2 at 5:00 a.m. Plan ahead and avoid the area.
This closure is needed for the construction of a portal frame for the REM elevated structure. A portal frame, a portion of the elevated structure supported by two pillars, will be installed to help support loads while leaving a clear space for vehicle traffic.
Further dates to be confirmed if required
Although a detour will be possible via the A40 West service road, it is recommended that users avoid the area.
Below is a map showing the area concerned and the detour to be taken during closure:
