Jackknifed trucks near Île-aux-Tourtes Bridge forced closure of all 3 eastbound lanes

A collision early Tuesday afternoon on Highway 40 eastbound, near the entrance of the Île-aux-Tourtes Bridge, forced the roadway to be closed all day.

A collision early Tuesday afternoon on Highway 40 eastbound, near the entrance of the Île-aux-Tourtes Bridge, forced the roadway to be closed all day.

A major collision along Highway 40 eastbound, near the entrance of the Île-aux-Tourtes Bridge off the western tip of Montreal, forced a complete closure of the roadway and caused a backlog of traffic for several kilometres all afternoon Tuesday.

The collision occured at around 1:30 p.m. It involved two transport trucks, one tanker truck and some other vehicles, forcing the closure of all three eastbound lanes.

Commuters coming from Vaudreuil trying to head onto the island of Montreal were stranded on Highway 40 for about two hours before officials had them reverse on the highway and detour down to Highway 20.


The damage wasn't limited to the eastbound lanes. Given that one of the trucks jackknifed, it also blocked one of the three westbound lanes.

No one was injured in the incident.

At around 7 p.m., Transports Québec reopened the roadway
