CBC needs to check out a map

CBC doesn’t know its bridges:

Quebec police closed down Highway 19 in both directions Wednesday to investigate a crack in a bridge between Montreal and Laval not far from the Concorde overpass that collapsed last September killing five people.

Police were called to Pont Viau late this morning to investigate a pothole on the bridge.

The Viau bridge, of course, actually connects des Laurentides in Laval with Lajeunesse in Montreal, and is part of Route 335, not Highway 19, which goes over the Papineau bridge. (If you need a map, may I suggest mine?)

The bridge has now re-opened, after engineers concluded the hole in it is superficial. And therefore there’s no reason to worry, right?
