Honoré-Mercier Bridge : no major road closure this weekend (March 8 & 9)
All lanes will be open and no major work is planned.
Have a Nice Weekend Chateauguay Valley Citizens!
No surprise to Chateauguay Valley area citizens, a recent inspection report obtained by the Journal de Montreal is said to state that the Honoré-Mercier bridge is in dire condition and needs urgent repairs. Area residents have been subject to years of disruption with these ongoing repairs.
After pouring $66-million into the Mercier Bridge over the last five years, much work remains to be completed.
According to CJAD800, spokesman for the bridge authority says there are plans to correct all the remaining problems over the next two years, but the good news is there will be fewer traffic disruptions because the work will be going on below the deck.
Deteriorating concrete water infiltration corrosion, cracks are of the many on going issues. Although ‘the inspectors’ state that the Mercier is still safe to drive over, many of us who travel over on a daily basis would beg to differ..I say a prayer and cross the fingers each time we head over that darn bridge, never mind the off road decking conditions but also for the NARROW lanes with 18 wheeler trucks nearly side swiping you as you cross..Hey inspectors and bridge authorities-time to rethink you strategy and continued investments into this crumbling mess me thinks..
Cheesy Cauliflower Patties
1 head cauliflower
2 large eggs
1/2 c cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 c panko (found in the bread crumb aisle, healthier option)
1/2 t cayenne pepper (more of less to taste)
Cut cauliflower into florets & cook in boiling water until tender about 10 minutes. Drain. Mash the cauliflower while still warm. Stir cheese, eggs, panko, cayenne & salt to taste.
Coat the bottom of a griddle or skillet with olive oil over medium-high heat. Form the cauliflower mixture into patties about 3 inches across. Cook until golden brown & set, about 3 minutes per side. Keep each batch warm in the oven while you cook the rest. Via Get your Skinny on with Stacey
