New Saint-La­zare ramp conti­nued hea­dache for dri­vers

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

Saint-La­zare and Vau­dreuil-Do­rion dri­vers trying to ac­cess west­bound High­way 40 from che­min Daoust/ave­nue Bé­dard will have to put up wi­thout high­way ac­cess un­til De­cem­ber. In ad­di­tion, mo­to­rists should be ready to see one lane on Hwy. 40 west per­io­di­cal­ly clo­sed un­til Oc­to­ber 31 so wor­kers can com­plete a new SaintLa­zare/Vau­dreuil-Do­rion exit ramp. The new exit will give dri­vers a di­rect con­nec­tion to che­min Daoust/ave­nue Bé­dard and will be mar­ked Saint-La­zare ona high­way si­gn.

Mar­jo­laine Ga­gné, a Tran­sports Québec com­mu­ni­ca­tions ad­vi­sor, said since the new exit will be ba­re­ly one ki­lo­metre from the exis­ting Exit # 26, which cur­rent­ly al­lows ac­cess to route 342 andHud­son, the exit will be re­num­be­red asExit #28.

MTQ stan­dards dic­tate the point far­thest west or far­thest south­must be cho­sen as the star­ting point of the as­cen­ding ki­lo­me­trage, and that each exit must bear a num­ber re­pre­sen­ting the num­ber of ki­lo­metres tra­vel­led fromthe high­way's be­gin­ning.

Meanw­hile, wor­kers will conti­nue re­pairs to the exis­ting Hwy. 40 west on-ramp, lo­ca­ted offDaoust/Bé­dard.

That too is ex­pec­ted to be com­ple­ted by ear­ly De­cem­ber. Once com­ple­ted, the new exit ramp, #26, will give dri­vers di­rect ac­cess to Daoust/Bé­dard fromHwy. 40 west.

With the new ramp, a dri­ver hea­ding west on High­way 40 will have the choice bet­ween using (new) exit #28 to Hud­son and route 342, or the soon to be com­ple­ted SaintLa­zare exit #26 which will lead di­rect­ly to Daoust/Bé­dard.
