Recap of the deconstruction of the Original Champlain Bridge

JCCBI achieved its goal to successfully deconstruct the historic former Champlain Bridge through in-depth planning to minimize the impact on the environment and the public and reuse the structure’s leftover materials. Overall, 56 spans, 53 piers and 53 pier footings were deconstructed by Nouvel Horizon Saint-Laurent G.P. (NHSL), a consortium made up of Pomerleau Inc. and Delsan-A.I.M. Environmental Services Inc. This project was completed two months ahead of schedule and within the initial budget of $225.7 million. Direct costs related to COVID-19 management totalled $4.9 million. Only three complaints were recorded during the 41 months of work.

The deconstruction project will conclude with the Héritage Champlain project to develop the land freed up on Île des Sœurs, on the Seaway dike and in Brossard now that the bridge is gone.
