Highway 720 West closed for repairs this weekend

Another round of construction work on Highway 720 means the westbound section of the road will be closed from Friday at midnight to 5 a.m. on Monday.

The highway will be closed between Panet Street and the Lucien-L'Allier Street entrance.

The detour will run from Viger Avenue to Robert-Bourassa Boulevard and along Saint-Antoine Street, where there is another entrance for the 720 West.

The construction work is part of $4.9 billion in road repairs across the province scheduled between 2015 and 2017.
