Off island drivers beware as night closures are coming to the Ile-aux-Tourtes bridge this weekend.
Starting at 10 p.m. Friday, the span will be completely closed in the East bound direction for two nights.
The bridge will reopen to traffic during the day beginning at 7 a.m.
The transport ministry is suggesting drivers plan ahead and take the detour via highway 20.
Necessary repaving work is the reason for the closure according to the transport ministry.
The originally scheduled full overnight closure of the bridge was called off because of operational constraints the ministry said.
The postponed work on the West bound lanes is being rescheduled for a later time.
Spokesperson for the transport ministry, Sarah Bensadoun said the ministry is currently figuring out possible dates.
Bensadoun said a complete overnight closure is on the table for the weekend of Oct. 1.
