No one was injured in the collision, according to , but the road’s eastbound lanes were closed between Brien and Larochelle boulevards in Repentigny as workers cleared up the debris and dismantled the remaining sections of the bridge.

The Transportation Ministry said dismantling the walkway is a “preventative measure”.
