Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue to open Highway 40 temporary access road


WATCH: The mayor of Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue discusses the new access road 

STE-ANNE-DE-BELLEVUE –  West Island motorists, rejoice.

By the end of August, a temporary access road will be opening on Highway 40 between the exit at Ste-Marie Rd. and Anciens Combattants Blvd.

“In 5 weeks people can roll directly from the 40 service road onto Exit 41,” said the mayor of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Paola Hawa.

The new temporary access road will cost about $40,000, but Hawa believes it’s worth it.

“Hopefully it will bring things slightly back to normal than it has been for the past 3 and a half years.”

Traffic congestion has plagued the area since the closure of the condemned Exit 41 overpass in March 2011.
