Here’s a look at this weekend’s road closings in Montreal.

Turcot and Montreal West interchanges

From 11:59 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, Highway 720/ Route 136 and Highway 20 westbound will be completely closed between Exit 5 in the Ville-Marie tunnel and the entrance to Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue Blvd. that is part of the Montreal West interchange.

The westbound St-Antoine on-ramp at Rose-de-Lima will be closed starting at 10 p.m. Friday, while the eastbound St-Antoine and Sanguinet St./Hôtel-de-Ville Ave. entrance will be closed starting at 11:30 p.m. Friday.

As a result of the closings, the Highway 15 South ramp for Highway 20 West; the Highway 15 North ramp for Highway 20 West; and the Highway 720 West ramp for Highway 15 North (Décarie) will all be closed between 11:59 p.m. Friday and 5 a.m. Monday.

Highway 720 East (toward downtown) will be closed between the Turcot Interchange and the entrance for Notre-Dame and Cathédrale Sts. in the Ville-Marie Tunnel between 11:59 p.m. Friday and 5 a.m. Monday.

As a result of that closing, the Highway 15 South (Décarie) ramp for Highway 720 East; the Highway 20 East ramp for Highway 720 East; and the Highway 20 East ramp for Highway 15 North (Décarie) will be closed for the same duration.

Glen Rd. will be completely closed between St-Antoine and Ste-Catherine Sts. from 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday.

Highway 10 East will be closed at the end of the bridge, between Exit 53 and the Taschereau Blvd. entrance, from 11 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday. As a result, ramps for Route 132 East and West (toward Sherbrooke) will be closed as of 10 p.m. Friday.

Highway 25 and Louis-Hippolyte-La Fontaine Tunnel

Highway 25 North will be closed between Exit 90 in Longueuil and the Souligny Ave. entrance in Montreal from 11 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, meaning there will be no Montreal-bound access to the Louis-Hippolyte-La Fontaine Tunnel. Drivers can take Exit 90 as a detour and head onto Route 132 West until the Jacques-Cartier Bridge.

Cycling events in Montreal

The cycling events Tour la Nuit (Friday night) and Tour de l’Île (Sunday) will also affect traffic this weekend, with intermittent road closings throughout the island all weekend.

For Friday’s Tour la Nuit, only the boroughs of Plateau-Mont-Royal, Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie, Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension and Ahuntsic-Cartierville are affected. Sunday’s event will bring more city-wide closings.

A complete list of streets affected by both events can be found on Vélo Québec’s website.
