    Motorists will have to avoid the Turcot interchange to get to the city centre this end of the week due to the beginning of the first stage of the dismantling of the highway 720 westbound. The cocktail weather expected, however, forced the postponement of the closure to Saturday night.

    The highway 720 west and 20 west between exit 5 (boulevard Robert-Bourassa/Bonaventure/Champlain bridge) in the Ville-Marie tunnel and the temporary entrance from the boulevard de Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue (junction Montreal-West) will be closed completely to traffic from Saturday 23: 59 Monday 5 h. initially, the closure was scheduled to begin on Friday at 23: 59, but the weather conditions – ice, heavy snow, have forced the authorities to shift their plans by 24 hours.

    Access to highway 20 west from highway 15 (north and south) will also be inaccessible during this period. The entries in the boulevard De La Vérendrye and Saint-Patrick street to highway 20 west will be closed.

    Highway 720 east will also be inaccessible from highways 15 south and 20 east. The inputs from the streets of Notre-Dame and the Cathedral, in the Ville-Marie tunnel, however, remain open.
