Remember the good old days when you could cruise around the city and not worry about detours, roadwork, and endless traffic? Neither do we…
Another round of road closure is expected across Montreal this weekend, so get ready. With summer in full swing and just about everything reopening, chances are plenty of people will want to get out of the house. And with construction crews working around the clock to complete several major projects such as the Turcot Interchange, there is bound to be traffic everywhere.
