Notice of low-level overflight helicopter – Hydro-Québec

Please be advised that Hydro-Québec will be carrying out thermographic inspections of some of its transmission lines during the week of January 15, 2024. The inspection will take place over two or three days, depending on weather conditions. 

A helicopter will fly at low altitude in the area identified by the image below. 

For more information, please call the Info-Project line at 514 385-8888, ext. 3462.

The purpose of the inspection is to identify and replace certain transmission line components which, over time, are more likely to cause service interruptions due to failure. The operation is part of Hydro-Québec’s priority to improve the quality and reliability of its network, including the transmission system, which comprises more than 34,000 km of lines.

Île-aux-Tourtes bridge

Reopening of a third lane scheduled for Monday, January 15 and update on mitigation measures  

Depending on the weather forecast, the opening of a 3rd traffic lane on the bridge is scheduled for Monday January 15. The configuration will be:

  • 2 lanes towards Vaudreuil-Dorion
  • 1 lane Montreal-bound

This configuration will be in effect at all times. The choice of direction was based on the most significant periods of congestion in recent weeks, which have been towards Vaudreuil-Dorion.

The opening will depend on weather conditions, since the last stage of the work involves marking the roadway, and must be carried out without precipitation. Mobile work took place last night, and a complete closure of the bridge is scheduled for Sunday night and Monday, from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m. the following day.
