The New Champlain Bridge project corridor extends over a length of approximately 8.5 km.
The highway approaches of the bridge corridor include the reconstruction of two major interchanges in Montreal and the widening and reconstructing of both Highways 15 and 10 over 4.5-kilometers in highly urbanized neighbourhoods within Montreal and its suburbs. Highways are equipped with aesthetically pleasing retaining walls, EPS walls as well as noise barriers to satisfy the needs of the community. Furthermore, the construction of a new 470-metre bridge connecting Montreal Island to Ile des Sœurs (Nuns’ Island) represents one of the highlights of the highway approach corridor structures.
Both cyclists and pedestrians will be able to safely travel over the project corridor on a multiple- use path and stop at one of the many belvederes to gain an exceptional view of the city.
Durability is also a key design consideration, with a 125-year design life set as design criteria.
