This is one of the busiest interchanges on Montreal’s South Shore and needed to be rebuilt to manage the increased volume of both normal and daily commuter traffic.
Pomerleau’s mandate involved:
- Construction of 7 new viaducts (3-lane divided highway plus bus and train overpasses);
- Building 3 new access roads;
- Construction of bridge access ramps for the new highway lanes.
- Building the drainage system for the new bridge access ramps, Taschereau Boulevard and the new access roads;
- Installation of an electronic traffic management system (7 cameras, 22 sets of traffic lights, 4 lighting masts) and dismantling of the old system;
- Construction of 4 reserved bus lanes;
- Demolition of existing access roads, highway exits and reserved bus lanes;
- Installation of new overhead signage and GTOG type crash barriers.
- A first in Quebec, Pomerleau employed an innovative drainage system that uses vertical drain.
- 90% of the concrete in this project is High Performance Concrete (HPC).
- Extremely tight schedule.
