Starting on November 18, there will be no transit to the South Shore because of construction work by the City of Saint-Lambert : the alternative route to get to Montréal will be the Jacques-Cartier Bridge bike path.

Slow Traffic on Chemin Macdonald

Due to construction work, traffic on Chemin Macdonald is expected to be slow from October 27 to December 13, 2019. A section of the road will be reduced to one lane on which vehicles will be able to circulate alternately. Furthermore, the vertical space available to vehicular traffic will be reduced to 3.8 meters under the Concorde Bridge during this period.
