NOTRE-DAME-DE-L’ÎLE-PERROT – There may be some relief to the traffic nightmare that was set off when roadwork began last week near Highway 20.

The town of Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot met with Transports Quebec Tuesday morning to discuss alternative solutions after a week of jammed rush hour traffic.

Officials said they’ve reached an agreement to change the synchronization of the lights at the intersection of Grand Boulevard.

This will hopefully help the flow of vehicles heading east in the morning and west in the evening.

According to town spokesperson Eric Leclerc, the target wait time for a car to reach the Galipeault Bridge is 10 minutes – a big difference from the one to two hours that residents claim they have been facing recently.

Motorists reacted nastily last week as work began, claiming that it now takes them double the time to get to work.

Construction is expected to last until Oct. 2016.
