Work on the Portage Bridge on April 16: Partial Closure of the HOV Lane

The National Capital Commission (NCC) wishes to inform the public about maintenance work on the Portage Bridge, taking place tomorrow, April 16, 2015, outside peak hours, from 9 am to noon.


The work will be undertaken on a 100-metre portion of the northbound lane for high-occupancy vehicles (HOV) going toward Gatineau. The two other lanes of the Portage Bridge will remain open at all times during the work.


It is likely that this work will impede the flow of cycling traffic in the bike lane next to the HOV lane. Pedestrians will be able to use the sidewalk at all times. Signage will be installed in the work area to inform users about the impacts of the work.


The NCC urges motorists, cyclists and pedestrians to exercise caution and to respect work crews and equipment, and obey flag persons and signage at the site.
