Challenges related to Highway 15
This figure shows a cross-section of the federal portion of Highway 15 in Montréal, highlighting several associated constraints for the new bridge for the St. Lawrence corridor project. For example, moving from left to right, the following features are depicted in the figure: the CN rail line, the Hydro-Québec line, snow chutes, the St. Pierre Collector, the noise wall and the relocation of May Street. Moving from left to right, the following are also shown on the figure, in addition to their approximate measurements: embankment, Butler St. (+/- 14m), CN railway overpass, access road to snow chute, D'Argenson/LaSalle Overpass (+/- 27 \m), embankment (+/- 22m) and residential use. The term "2 floors" is also displayed to illustrate the approximate height of the D'Argenson/LaSalle overpass.
A computer-generated still image of the federal portion of Highway 15 in Montréal is presented. The image depicts what the portion of the Highway 15 may look like once it has been reconstructed and widened from four to six lanes. The Hydro-Québec line and surrounding buildings are also prominently featured.
There are three small figures that show some of the properties and land that will have to be acquired for the new bridge for the St. Lawrence corridor project. The properties and land are located adjacent to the federal portion of Highway 15 in Montréal, on Gibbons Street, May Street, and on Île-des-Soeurs next to René-Lévesque Boulevard.
A computer-generated still image of the Atwater interchange as it may appear following construction by the private partner as part of the new bridge for the St. Lawrence corridor project is displayed. The image shows the federal portion of Highway 15 in Montréal next to the Atwater interchange. The entrance and exit ramps to Atwater Avenue, Hydro-Québec lines and surrounding buildings are also featured in the image.
Cross-section view of LaSalle Boulevard's new configuration
This figure depicts a cross-section of LaSalle Boulevard in its future configuration as part of the new bridge for the St. Lawrence corridor project. The federal portion of Highway 15 in Montréal that runs over LaSalle Boulevard is shown, in addition to the multi-use paths and vehicle lanes on LaSalle Boulevard. Measurements for the different features of LaSalle Boulevard are also shown.
Cross-section view of Gaétan-Laberge Boulevard's new configuration
This figure depicts a cross-section of Gaétan-Laberge Boulevard in Montréal its future configuration as part of the new bridge for the St. Lawrence corridor project. Moving from left to right on the figure, the railway, planting strip, vehicle lanes with central median, bicycle lane, mowed zone, and naturalisation are illustrated.
René-Lévesque Boulevard's new configuration on Île-des-Soeurs
This figure depicts a cross-section of René-Lévesque Boulevard on Île-des-Soeurs in its future configuration as part of the new bridge for the St. Lawrence corridor project. The illustration shows the Champlain Bridge / Highway 15 approach section, with René-Lévesque Boulevard underneath. On the right-hand side of the illustration, the West Champlain abutment wall with a bike path is shown running next to the St. Lawrence River. Measurements are also shown for the different features of the configuration.
A computer-generated still image shows a future pedestrian tunnel running underneath Highway 15 on Île-des-Soeurs as part of the new bridge for the St. Lawrence corridor project. There are several pedestrians shown walking through the tunnel.
Bike Path Network
A computer-generated still image features a depiction of the multi-use path on the new Champlain Bridge. There is a lookout on the multi-use path that features a view of the St. Lawrence River and the City of Montréal. Cyclists and pedestrians are using the multi-use path. The image also includes the lanes for vehicles with cars, in addition to the cable stay portion of the new bridge.
