A traffic accident about 90 mins ago shut down the highway on both sides toward when a pole fell across the roadway. Emergency crews have just cut up the pole allowing traffic flow toward Montreal.
Those attempting to head toward Kahnawake, Laprairie and Chateauguay are still crawling toward the bridge via the roadway’s shoulder at Rte-138 near Rue Clément. Traffic is backed up, for a long, long way onto the 20 west. Crews are attempting to cut and remove the pole on the westbound side.
We suggest taking the Airlie entrance toward the bridge!
