The Jacques Cartier Bridge is undergoing substantial maintenance work over the next three weeks, and will face several overnight closures as a result.

Crews will be jacking up sections of the bridge and replacing load-bearing sections.

They start the night of Sunday, Nov. 18, and repeat the operation six more times in the weeks to come.

Each operation is weather dependent and will be delayed if it's too nasty for crews to do the job. Fortunately each job is relatively short, only expecting to take three hours, from 1 a.m. to 4 a.m.

Here is the current schedule for closures.

  • Monday, Nov. 19
  • Wednesday, Nov. 21
  • Monday, Nov. 26
  • Wednesday, Nov. 28
  • Monday, Dec. 3
  • Wednesday, Dec. 5
  • Saturday, Dec. 8
