Damage expected at Darche Interchange in coming weeks

The construction phase of the temporary bridge, which makes it possible to maintain traffic during the destruction of the current structure, begins on Monday. The ministry had already announced increased impacts on traffic for spring 2024.

“Pointy barriers will be necessary to allow installation of the structure. During operations, signs will be put up at various places to alert road users about the obstructions,” he said today.

The most “significant” damage “in the coming weeks” will occur on both King Street West and Highway 410.

Before proceeding with the demolition phase, MTMD plans to spend six weeks installing the temporary structure. Once in service, this temporary bridge will be able to maintain only one lane of traffic per direction.

There are also plans to completely close highways to allow the work to be completed. In addition to the occasional nighttime closures already planned, the ministry is now planning daytime closures on weekends in March, its spokeswoman Isabelle Dorais informed. The dates in question are yet to be determined. “It would be impossible for crews to demolish the structure and clean up in a single night,” he said of the demolition phase.

Commissioning of the new interchange is planned for late 2024 and full completion of the project in 2025, making it an impressive three-year project with a total budget of $77 million, including a $4.6 million contribution from Is included. City of Sherbrooke.
