La Gabelle road link seen from the spillway.

The La Gabelle development offers a road link across the river, connecting the municipalities of Saint-Étienne-des-Grès and Notre-Dame-du-Mont-Carmel.

Due to the type of work required, the work methods used, and considerations for the safety of the public and workers, the La Gabelle road link will be temporarily closed during the preparatory work taking place between February and June 2016.

The main work for replacing the gate lifting mechanism is currently slated for June 2016 to December 2017. The road link will be completely closed during this work, from June 2016 to December 2017, but will be open during the 2016 and 2017 construction holidays and the 2016 Christmas holiday period.

In the longer-term, Hydro-Québec wants to keep the road link open for users.
