Project description

A weakness in the bedrock of the Arch No. 3 structure of the Chaudiere Crossing was identified during a planned inspection. To ensure the safety of users, 2 lanes have been closed while analysis continues.

Given this recently identified weakness, options are being analyzed and a solution will be found in consultation with stakeholders. Preliminary results show that the Arch No. 3 structure will require significant work, including rehabilitation or a possible replacement. Depending on the solution, the work could take 2 years to complete.

Once a solution has been identified, details on the type of project selected, its estimated value and the timelines will be available on this webpage.

Public Services and Procurement Canada will continue to engage and collaborate with the cities of Gatineau and Ottawa throughout this process.
