Went in a truck to the hell of the bridge

Trucked off to bridge hell


On the first day of the announced ordeal of the closure of half of the lanes of the Louis-Hippolyte-La Fontaine tunnel, Le Journal embarked with a trucker who had gone to look for a refrigerated container, which could be used to bring back cranberries for Christmas. 

To do this, a TYT Group truck picked up our journalist at dawn in Sainte-Julie, on the South Shore of Montreal, before going take the tunnel bridge.

Before the big departure, Patrick Turcotte, president of the TYT Group, explained that his driver had the mission to fetch a container, which could later be used to bring back cranberries from the Fruit d'Or transformer.

Monday, at 6:15 a.m. sharp, our truck driver, Denis Auclair, was ready to throw himself into the lion's mouth.

Departure – 6:15 a.m.

First stopper – 6:45 a.m.

7am – In Montreal, direction South Shore , already blocked before entering the bridge
