Provincial Funding: $3.67 billion

City / Region: Montreal

Estimated End Date of Substantial Completion: 2020

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.

Multiple projects continue on all areas of the new interchange as the build nears its 2020 completion date. However, 2019 did mark the completion of the A-720/A-20 interchange.
