As we all know, the construction of the new Champlain Bridge started in June 2016 and is proceeding on schedule. The federal government guarantees it will last 100 years! Let’s tell our grandchildren now so they can remember this promise and see that it is kept by the future governments!
Daniel Genest, Director of the building consortium, Signature sur le Saint-Laurent, explained that the bridge is constructed like a LEGO game: block by block.
The blocks are mounted within a one millimetre degree, an impressive degree of precision given the size of the project.
