A portion of Highway 40 East will be closed for the summer.

Beginning Saturday, May 27 at 8 a.m., Highway 40 eastbound between the Morgan Boulevard sector in Baie-D'Urfé and the entrance from Saint-Charles Boulevard in Kirkland, will be closed entirely. The segment will continue to be closed throughout the summer. This closure is due to the reconstruction of pavement between the two areas.

Traffic will be diverted westbound. There will be three lanes open during peak hours and two contraflow lanes. This scenario will be in place until December. On Highway 40 eastbound, road users bound for Exits #49 - Ch. Ste-Marie or #50 - Boul. Saint-Charles, will be able to get to their destination via a marked corridor from exit #44 - Boul. Morgan.

A noise barrier has been installed between Gérard-Guindon and Chemin Sainte-Marie. The current work will be completed next year. According to MTQ estimates, this sector of Highway 40 sees 110,000 vehicles every day.
