The paving work on the Jacques-Cartier was finished sooner than expected because we’ve had such dry weather.

It seems to me that the “let’s just close the thing and get on with the work to be done” approach seems to work better than the “Let’s close half a lane, so that we can give back 100% of the lanes but reduced width” approach?
This, along with the tunnel paralume removal activities (and a few other instances like overpass removal / construction) seems to work very well. Maybe we will learn, maybe.
They didn’t do either, exactly. They closed half the bridge a week ago and paved it, allowing one lane open in each direction, and over the weekend they did the other half. They scheduled both work weekends for the construction holiday to get the best weather with the fewest commuters, and put extra metro cars on the yellow line. Except for rain briefly delaying last week’s paving it went flawlessly.
I’m embarrassed to say that the lane closures on J.-C. led me to take the Victoria bridge for the first time ever. Nice ride, but didn’t enjoy the feeling that the car was swaying back and forth.
Yes, there’s something about the metal surface of the Victoria – you’re not the first driver I’ve heard deplore the way your car moves on that bridge.
I guess i’m in the minority, but i LOVE the way the car sounds and feels in the Victoria bridge.
Me too, Faiz Imam, but then I’ve never been the driver. You?
Just drove across Victoria bridge yesterday and thought it was lovely!
Gotta love the Vic’! I really miss the old days, where rush-hour traffic on the south-west side / lane was bi-directional!
The Victoria and J-C bridges are the only ones I trust.
if you feel like the car’s swaying, odds are your tires are underinflated. Save gas, check your tire pressure.
