The Albert Bélanger Bridge Reopens

The United Counties of Prescott and Russell (UCPR) announce that the Albert Bélanger Bridge located in Lemieux is now reopened to traffic.

“We needed major construction work on the bridge, and we are very satisfied with the results. Citizens can now use the Albert Bélanger Bridge with confidence. Once again, we would like to thank the community for their patience and cooperation during the extensive work on our road network,” said Jérémie Bouchard, Director of Public Works.

“We would like to thank the UCPR Public Works team for carrying out this necessary work to extend the life of the bridge and ensure the safety of motorists. With the bridge located on a heavily used county road, getting around for our residents and visitors will now be faster and easier,” added Normand Riopel, Warden of the UCPR.

Work on the bridge began in February 2023. Due to the bridge having to be fully lifted, the lanes in both directions were closed for the duration of construction.
