New Bridge for the St. Lawrence

The Minister of the Environment has designated this project and the environmental assessment will continue under the former Canadian Environmental Assessment Act.

The Government of Canada is proposing to build a New Bridge to replace the existing Champlain Bridge in Montreal. It will span the St. Lawrence River to connect the Island of Montreal to the South Shore. This is the busiest crossing in Canada for cars, trucks and buses and is vital to the regional and national economies.

The project has six parts:

  • New Bridge for the St. Lawrence;
  • Alignment with Autoroute 10;
  • Work on Nuns' Island;
  • New Nuns' Island Bridge;
  • Reconstruction and Widening of a Section of Autoroute 15; and
  • Demolition of the Existing Champlain Bridge.;
