Pont Mercier bridge Piste Cyclable / Bike Path

Will the renovated Pont Mercier Bridge have a modern, safe bicycle path built with the major bridge=deck renovations starting to get under way?

No one on the internet seems to know, does anyone out there have the answer to this question? The Mercier bridge is the "missing link" to an amazing voie-maritime seaway bike path complete loop ride. The mercier brisge connects close to the Lachine Canal and Les Berges ste-laurence river-side bike path through lachine, lasalle, and verdun. If the Pont Mercier gets a real bike sidewalk (as expected, we hope) this 60 km loop will be one of the great bike rides in the universe.

There will be a path (should be done by 2012). Passing near the bridge myself, I can see that they are (slowly) adding it! It will easily remove about an hour from my trip to the south shore and that would be great!

But it safe to cross the bridge on a bike right now...
