The Ministry of Transport announced that a section of Route 335 will be closed to traffic in both directions for the weekend of Oct. 14.
The closure will take place between Dagenais (east) and Laurentides boulevards, from Friday, Oct. 14, at 10 p.m., until Monday, Oct. 17, at 4 a.m. Des Perron Avenue will also be closed during that time. It won’t be accessible from Thursday, Oct. 13 at 9 p.m.
The work is required in order to proceed with the commissioning of a new temporary intersection, located at the corner of Route 335 and des Perron Avenue. That will be used until the opening of the new Saint-Saëns Street (east) interchange, scheduled for next summer.
The temporary configuration will force the prohibition of circulation for pedestrians and cyclists. However, once opened, the new interchange will include a multipurpose track for them.
The Ministry recommends that road users travelling southbound take Laurentides Boulevard, westbound, to Highway 440, eastbound, and then return to Route 335 to avoid the section that will be closed this weekend.
Going north, drivers can instead take Dagenais Boulevard (east), westbound, and then take Laurentides Boulevard, northbound, to Route 335.
Heavy vehicles travelling north will instead be intercepted at the intersection of Route 335 and des Grands-Maîtres/Dagenais Boulevard (east). They’ll therefore have to take Grands-Maîtres and Robert-Bourassa boulevards, followed by Highway 440’s service road, westbound. That will allow them to find Laurentides Boulevard in a northerly direction, in order to then finally get route 335.
Let’s note that the work could be cancelled, or postponed without notice due to operational or weather constraints. (N.P.)
