Quebec’s at-risk overpasses, bridges and ramps

After pressure from truckers, the Quebec Transport Department has finally decided to release the list of 135 overpasses it considers “at-risk” (but not “unsafe”) and is prohibiting overloaded trucks from taking them. The complete list is in PDF form on their website.

It contains eight overpasses on the Island of Montreal:

I’ve plotted them on Google Maps. Click the image above to see in detail. They are:

  • An overpass (the department isn’t clear which one) on Highway 520 South over itself (?) leading to the airport
  • Côte-Vertu Blvd. over Highway 13
  • Tellier Street over Highway 25, a few blocks north of the tunnel
  • Monette Street over Highway 138 in LaSalle (this counts as two separate overpasses, one for each direction of the 138)
  • Gouin Blvd. over Highway 19 (Papineau)
  • Bleury Street over Highway 720, beside the Palais des Congrès
  • The exit ramp from Highway 13 northbound to Highway 40 over Saint-François Road

UPDATE: I’ve added the rest of the 135 overpasses.

I desperately need something more productive to do with my time.
