On Saturday, the Ministry of Transport proceeded with the preventive closure of Highway 20 in both directions due to the risk of road settling in the section.

A team from the Ministry of Transport and agents from the Sûreté du Québec were deployed on the ground.

Vehicle traffic is redirected indefinitely to exit 181, rue Montplaisir, route 122 and route 143.

In a press release, the city of Drummondville urges residents to avoid a sector that is highly congested as much as possible.
