REMINDER/Macdonald-Cartier Bridge Lane Reductions

GATINEAU, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Aug. 13, 2011) - Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) wishes to advise motorists of lane reductions on the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, August 13.

During that time, two of the three Gatineau-bound lanes will be closed first. Once the Gatineau-bound lanes are re-opened, two of the three Ottawa-bound lanes will then be closed.

These lane reductions will not affect pedestrians.

The schedule may change due to inclement weather.

These lane reductions are necessary to conduct general maintenance on the bridge.

PWGSC encourages users to exercise caution when in the construction zone and thanks them for their patience.
