Project Overview

Turcot interchange is a hub for road traffic in Montréal area interconnecting highways 15, 20 and 720 in addition of facilitating access to the Champlain Bridge. It is also an essential road link between Montreal-Pierre-Elliott Trudeau international airport and downtown Montréal and has a traffic volume of more than 300 000 vehicles per day. The Turcot Project includes the reconstruction of Angrignon, De La Vérendrye and Montréal-Ouest interchanges, and adjacent sections of highways 15, 20 and 720

The objective of this design-build project is to build a complex of interchanges and highways connected to the existing road network, capable of providing users with a high level of road safety, service and comfort while maximizing the infrastructure’s lifespan.

The project includes:

  • Rebuilding four major interchanges and sections of three highways;
  • Moving a section of highway and railway to allow for future development of the Turcot Yard;
  • Adding dedicated lanes for modal transport (bus and taxi);
  • Significantly reducing the number of structures;
  • Improving the geometry of the road layout;
  • Re-establishing conventional east-west traffic flow on the A-20;
  • Building new links to the local road network;
  • Adding bike paths.
