The overpass had been closed for six months, after a section of the span above Cardinal Ave. was damaged during a fatal car accident.
The pedestrian overpass at Highway 20 and Sources Blvd. in Pointe-Claire has finally reopened.
The overpass had been closed for six months, after a section of the span above Cardinal Ave. was damaged during a fatal car accident in December of 2021.
The winding overpass allows pedestrians and cyclists to traverse Highway 20. There are entrances to the pedestrian overpass on both Cardinal Ave. and de l’Église Ave. in Pointe-Claire.
The overpass repairs took longer than expected because it took several months to get a technical damage report from external experts. Finding a contractor also proved challenging during the pandemic, the city said.
The violent car crash that took place in December claimed the life of 16-year-old Noah-Leewis Mercier.
Another vehicle crashed near that location on Nov. 30, 2021. In that accident, the driver survived the crash.
