The Turcot Interchange is a massive project.
The majority of the 50-year-old interchange’s work is expected to be finished by the end of the spring, according to Transport Quebec. And to say it’s been a lasting headache for Montreal drivers would be an understatement.
The $3.6-billion interchange, the largest construction project in the province, is over 60% completed and is on course to be finished by the end of 2020.
- REM construction to cause HUGE travel delays from Montrealers
- Travel website ranks Montreal among the best cities in the world for public transport
- $400M deconstruction of the old Champlain Bridge expected to take 3 years
- A crucial stretch of Angrignon Boulevard is closing down for a year
Headaches, construction, delays and traffic aside, it’s an unbelievably orchestrated project that’s been part of the island of Montreal for the better part of a decade.
This morning, the Transport Quebec administration took to Twitter to show the transformations the interchange has gone through, over fifteen years, courtesy of an aerial view above the road network.
Say what you will about the project, the differences are pretty spectacular to see from such a vantage point.
Can you spot all 50,000 differences?
