Montreal-Laval A-25 Bridge Nearing Completion -- Pictures
« on: March 02, 2011, 08:09:12 PM »

The new toll bridge on A-25 between Montreal and Laval is nearing completion and is expected to open in May, 2011. A friend and I went roadgeeking in the area (as well as location scouting for an upcoming Monteal meet), and I brought back some pictures.

I apologize for the average picture quality, it was getting a bit dark as we were coming back from Saint-Donat.

EDIT: Also, this (French) document shows what the new toll signs will look like, pages 14 and 15. Unfortunately, they won't be blue.

Bit off-topic for this thread, I know, but I quite like the hill descent sign.

I note the material on Page 11 of the first linked document stating that the use of Clearview is now compulsory.

Yes, for positive-contrast on BGSes.

I went to the public inaugural event on the bridge on May 14. Despite the heavy rain. Pictures:

Warning to 1995hoo and others: Lots of Clearview indeed.

By the way, the bridge opens on May 20.

I don't mind the Clearview. My comment was more because others hate it so. I find it easier to read at a distance, although I think there should be some more space between lines of text since the typeface appears to be larger.

I also found a webcast about the construction of the bridge: http://www.a25.com/index.php?section=images&langue=EN
