Following a reconfiguration to two lanes per direction implemented this weekend, this will be maintained for at least a year, according to MTMD.
At the same time, mitigation measures will be put in place to limit the impact on local traffic. These include the addition of two train departures on the exo11 Vaudreuil-Hudson line for the morning and afternoon rush periods, and the addition of two rush-hour stops at Hudson station to give local residents greater flexibility and avoid trips to Vaudreuil-Dorion.
A follow-up will also be carried out to optimize traffic light programming, and police presence will be increased to facilitate travel on Highway 20.
The closure of the Chenaux entrance to A-40 East, with a flagman presence to direct buses around the boulevard de la Cité-des-Jeunes, is also planned.
The MTMD will also be working with police authorities to ensure a police presence at strategic intersections for the first few days and weeks.
As a reminder, starting Monday November 27 at 5 a.m., traffic will alternate according to the following schedule:
- 2 lanes Montreal-bound: between midnight and 9:30 a.m;
- 2 lanes towards Vaudreuil-Dorion: between 11:30 a.m. and 10 p.m.
- Between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., and between 10 p.m. and midnight, only one lane per direction will be available for configuration changes.
