Motorists must arm themselves patience. An excavator transported on a trailer struck the Vézina viaduct on the southbound Décarie highway Monday morning, causing traffic congestion.

The highway was closed southbound between Jean-Talon and Plamondon streets for several hours. This caused significant congestion.

However, around noon, traffic gradually returned to normal after the excavator and the truck transporting it were towed.

Two out of four lanes are reopened to traffic while waiting for the cleaning work to be carried out by the Ministry of Transport.

It is now a matter of putting the excavator back on tracks and bringing in a trailer truck to transport the excavator, ensuring this once the height of the viaduct is respected.

This is not the first time that a structure is hit on the Décarie highway, recalls Mr. Payer. Two years ago, almost in the same place, the Savane viaduct was hit, fortunately without any major problem for the structure.

For now, the structure is safe and traffic can resume there.

A summary inspection showed that the structure remains safe, explains Gilles Payer, but a more in-depth inspection will be carried out later to possibly change a beam as a precaution.
