Jacques Cartier Bridge to pilot bike path project during 2019-2020 winter season

The Jacques Cartier Bridge plans to test out a pilot project, allowing cyclists to use the bridge throughout the 2019-2020 winter season.

A group of 25 volunteer cyclists have already been chosen and the project has received another 100 applicants since announcing the project. The 25 people selected will have special access to the bridge as a part of the initiative, which will test whether the multi-purpose bridge can be used year-’round.

As the cyclists get private access to cross the bridge with their bikes throughout the winter, they’ll provide feedback to the Jacques Cartier Bridge authorities on their experience.

The cyclists will be given a special vest and a key to the bridge.

Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) communications director Nathalie Lessard said the data collected will be used to make a decision in the future.
