Abstract: During the construction of the underground and depressed sections of the East-West Expressway in downtown Montreal, public utilities and essential services had to be maintained across the right-of-way. These utilities and services included electric power, communications and controls, telephone, water supply, gas mains, sewers, vehicular traffic, and pedestrian crossings. Types of supporting structures include beam and girder bridges, trusses, and suspension bridges of the one, two, and three-cable varieties. The solutions selected at diverse locations are described.
