Closure of the Henri-IV highway: monster congestion in Quebec

Motorists will have to be patient during the weekend, because of the many closures that make traffic difficult in Quebec.

Already, Saturday morning, the closure of the Henri-IV highway (A-73) was causing huge traffic jams in the Capitale-Nationale.

Highway 73 is, in fact, dotted with closures that will be in effect until Monday morning.

First, there is a complete closure northbound between Autoroute Duplessis (A-540)/Boulevard Laurier (R-175) and Boulevard du Versant-Nord.

Then a second closure takes place in a southerly direction between the Charest (A-440)/Félix-Leclerc (A-40) highway and Hochelaga Boulevard.

Their movements being turned upside down by several closures, motorists are invited to take a detour via the Duplessis highway (A540) northbound and via the Félix-Leclerc highway (A40) eastbound.

“Avoid the sector and, above all, plan your trips by consulting Québec 511,” Transport Québec reminded us in a Tweeter released on Friday.

Traffic is expected to remain difficult until Monday morning, when Highway 73 will reopen to traffic.
