The ministère des Transports has announced that Cartier Boulevard will be completely closed at the access road for Autoroute 15 north from November 4 to 18. The closure is necessary to pursue repair work on the overpass overlooking Autoroute 15. At this point in the reconstruction, the closure is needed to allow for major roadwork such as removing the temporary retaining walls and improving the overpass.
