The Turcot Interchange is a major traffic hub in the Montreal area, connecting Autoroutes 15, 20, and 720, and facilitating access to the Champlain Bridge. It is also a vital link between the Montreal Pierre- Elliott-Trudeau International Airport and downtown. The final plans for the reconstruction of the deteriorating expressway interchange include more space allocated to public transit, cyclists, pedestrians, and green space. Several bus-only lanes have been reserved along Highway 20, Notre Dame Street West, and St. Patrick Street.
Construction of a temporary public transit bypass at Notre Dame and Angrignon Boulevard West has been completed to minimize the impact of the Turcot Interchange reconstruction. The project is expected to be completed by 2020.
