We’ve got some great news for those living off the island in the western part of the Montérégie region… Traffic flow will improve sooner than you think!

That’s right - the third lane on the Île-aux-Tourtes Bridge has officially reopened as of Monday!

This means that now there are two lanes headed toward Vaudreuil-Dorion, and still only one directed towards Montreal.

The Quebec Transport Ministry confirmed that this change was made after it completed construction work on a damaged portion of the bridge. The bridge was originally built in 1966, and has undergone several changes in recent years.

At the moment, enhancements to train services and use of shoulder bus lanes on Highway 40 will stay in place.

The Transport Ministry still encourages people to use public transit as much as possible. Exo's Vaudreuil-Hudson line continues to offer free train service to the following stations:

Hudson
Vaudreuil
Dorion
Pincourt
Île-Perrot
Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue 
Baie-d’Urfé

Commuters using any of these stations will continue to receive a free two-ride pass, including connections to the STM bus and Metro networks as well as the REM.
