KPH Turcot Connects Montréal with Aconex

Project name: KPH Turcot - Turcot Interchange | Industry: Road & RailProject size: US$1.15 billion | Location: Montréal, Quebec

The Turcot Interchange is a hub for road traffic in the Montréal area, interconnecting Highways 15, 20 and 720 while facilitating access to the Champlain Bridge. It is also an essential road link between Montreal-Pierre-Elliott Trudeau International Airport and downtown Montréal. After almost 50 years of service, one of the most important interchanges in Québec ‒ which has a traffic volume of more than 300 000 vehicles per day ‒ had to be rebuilt. The project also included the reconstruction of the Angrignon, De La Vérendrye and Montréal-Ouest interchanges, and adjacent sections of Highways 15, 20 and 720.
