Original Champlain Bridge

Jacques Cartier & Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) has appointed Nouvel Horizon St-Laurent Consortium, which is made up of Pomerleau and Delsan-AIM, to carry out the work under a design-build contract. The team had been named in March (link opens in new tab).

The bridge’s replacement opened last year.

“We are very pleased to have signed this contract, which caps off a rigorous and transparent procurement process and marks the start of work on this major infrastructure project that will create hundreds of jobs in the coming months,” said JCCBI chief executive officer Sandra Martel. She confirmed that the deconstruction work will be done within the project’s global cost envelope of app USS$295 million and that the work will be completed in winter 2024. “Since JCCBI prioritises occupational health and safety, all the sanitary measures required in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic will be implemented on site,” she added.

The deconstruction work will cost US$165 million, in addition to future direct costs related to the implementation of the extra measures in the context of the pandemic.
