With the fireworks festival over, repair work will be done this weekend on the Jacques Cartier Bridge.
Several ramps will be closed, including from the Bridge to Taschereau Blvd. East/Highway 20/Highway 132.
The ramp from Highway 134 East to Highway 20/132 will also be closed.
Crews will be replacing expansion joints and waterproof membranes, as well as repairing concrete.
That work starts at 11 p.m. Friday and will continue until 5:30 a.m. Monday.
Meanwhile the ramp from the bridge to St. Lawrence Blvd., which was closed on July 9, will remain closed for another month.
