New bus routes following the closing of Chevrier Tunnel
Nature of work
Eventually, the REM will run down the middle of Highway 10, where the reserved bus lanes are currently located. Beginning in the spring of 2019, work will begin in this central portion of the highway, which will lead to permanent closure of the Chevrier Tunnel on April 25.
Reserved bus lanes will be maintained in dense traffic areas, in order to ensure efficient service is provided to public transit users. Planning for the new bus traffic lanes is carried out in close collaboration with a number of partners, including municipal authorities, the Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) and exo.
Detailed information on route changes is available on RTL website.
