Getting to Mont Tremblant via Montreal

Post by StephanAlfa » Tue Jun 18, 2019 3:25 pm

Hi !
Just wanted to let everyone know that there a NEWLY opened Champlain Bridge to cross into Montreal. There may be still some construction around there and beware of potholes going through Montreal expressway, Trans-Canada Highway and then should be all clear once you are on Hwy 15 bound for Mont-Tremblant

Safe travels everyone!

Are you sure it's open? I haven't seen any announcement that it finally did open.

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/ ... ix-months/ says it's opening June 24th in the northbound direction.

https://www.journaldemontreal.com/2019/ ... -24-juin-1 adds that Southbound direction is opening on the 28th.

So no new bridge for most of us.

Sorry about that. :oops:
I was recently in Montreal and told the bridge was going to open but I see from this news link that there were delays:

Well, watch out for the potholes on old bridge then, I had to send my car for re-alignment... :(

I always avoid Montreal traffic by going over the Pont Mercier bridge. Also take a little known border crossing on rt 223

It's Montreal. Just watch out for potholes, generally.

It was definitely not open two weeks ago. All that new bridge does at the moment is block your view of that fantastic skyline as you approach the city.
