Samuel-De Champlain bridge was inaugurated today

The inauguration ceremony of the new Samuel-De Champlain Bridge was in full swing on Friday morning, 57 years to the day after the inauguration of the former Champlain Bridge.

After being opened to traffic to Montreal last Monday, the new structure will be fully open to the South Shore starting Monday, July 1 at 11am.

It was originally scheduled to open last December, but various delays pushed back the opening and added another $235 million to the original $4.2 billion price tag.
