--- Quote from: MikeTheActuary on May 11, 2022, 05:47:31 PM ---So, my employer had its RTO last week, and I'm now making my first trip in since the start of the pandemic.

I stopped at the 89/133 crossing this afternoon to get a new work permit, and was surprised a few km later to encounter a construction zone.  (Actually, since I was headed to Montréal, I guess construction shouldn't have been much of a surprise.)

Looks like they are reasonably well along with grading for the southern extension of Autoroute 35.  Sadly, I wasn't prepared with a camera; maybe next trip.

I'm in Montréal for work again, and passed through the Autoroute 35 construction zone.   Again, didn't really have the opportunity to take pictures.

The simple future interchange where 35 will eventually diverge from 133 is taking shape, with construction underway for the future ramp from southbound 133 to whatever the highway to the border will be designated as (not sure whether it will be a full Autoroute, or retain the non-controlled access 133 designation).

There's some plans to upgrade the remaining gap of PQ-133 as full freeway and one interchange will replace an intersection.

The construction of the Philipsburg interchange is slated for an undated phase IV, along with the Saint-Alexandre interchange. Although a design for thie Philipsburg interchange has been made public, there has been no land acquisition, thus probably no definitive planning. There is hardly 1,000, nay 2,000 vpd on this section; nothing justifies grading quickly the scarce intersections with low-volume roads or dead-end streets south of Pike River.

A 5.8 kilometer segment of Autoroute 85 has been upgraded to a full freeway east and west of Exit 60 at Saint-Honoré-de-Témiscouata. The official opening was on November 2.

Just looking at the MTQ website, on the A-35 Project page, Phase IV is still undated, and still reported as "on planning" in the PQI (Plan québécois des infrastructures, or Quebec's Infrastructural Plan), but is on the list of bill 66, accelerating some government projects, adopted in 2020, so it will probably begin in 2023 or 2024, in order to upgrade the last part of the actual QC-133 (the divided part) to interstate standards.
