Due to the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal this weekend, there will be no major road closures due to construction, the transport ministry (MTQ) says.

However, the MTQ advises those driving in and around the city to plan ahead since congestion is expected downtown and on the Jacques-Cartier and Samuel-de Champlain bridges.
