The REM has announced that a portion of the Highway 40 West service road will be closed for three consecutive weekends. The closure is located near Saint-Jean Boulevard and will begin Friday, July 31 at 10 pm.
This closure is due to the installation of a gantry related to the construction of the Réseau express métropolitain (REM).
“A gantry, a portion of the elevated structure supported by two pillars, will be installed to help support loads. The gantry will be installed on either side of the Highway 40 West service road in anticipation of further construction of the elevated structure.”
The REM has provided detour options available during the closure.
“A detour will be possible via Tecumseh and Selkirk Avenues and Brunswick Boulevard.
Another detour route will be possible via Saint-Jean Boulevard, Labrosse Avenue, Selkirk Avenue and Brunswick Boulevard.
An optional route will also be accessible via Highway 40 westbound.”
