Victoria Bridge Rehabilitation Work

CN wants to implement a traffic management automation and control solution on the Victoria Bridge in Montreal. The work will involve improving signage and adding surveillance cameras to the approaches to the bridge, as well as adding automated barriers, installing a system for detecting non-standard trucks and automated rerouting towards a reversal lane (including a check weighing system) involving the modification of the road geometry on the south shore. The works are scheduled to be carried out in 2022 and 2023.
