On October 5, 2011, the Government of Canada announced the new Champlain Bridge corridor project, one of the largest infrastructure projects in North America. The corridor-wide project not only includes the new Champlain bridge, but a new Île- des-Soeurs Bridge and reconstruction and widening of the federal portion of Autoroute 15. The new bridge is designed to have three-corridors, including two three-lane corridors for vehicular traffic and a two-lane transit corridor capable of accommodating a light rail transit system. The new bridge will also include a multi- use path for pedestrians and cyclists.

In August of 2017, the first phase of steel work on the Jacques Carter Bridge was completed, marking a major milestone for the project. This phase of the project involved the replacement of four braces and eight bottom chords, while 150 gusset plates and 17 diagonals were reinforced. Also, approximately 100,000 rivets were also replaced with bolts.

The deadline for substantial completion of the project is set as December 31, 2018.
