Highway 10 was completely closed to traffic on Sunday in both directions due to a “police operation” by the Sûreté du Québec, which is asking motorists to avoid the area for the next few hours.

“A police operation is currently underway in the area of ​​Highway 10, eastbound, at km 8 in Brossard. We ask motorists to avoid the area,” the Sûreté du Québec said in a brief statement early Sunday afternoon.

On Twitter, the Ministry of Transport and Sustainable Mobility (MTMD) also confirmed the complete closure via Quebec 511, also speaking of a “police security operation”.

No other details have been provided by the authorities on the nature of the said operation.
