The town center of Montlouis-sur-Loire 

From mid-May to March 2017

Works will take place in the town centre of Montlouis-sur-Loire from mid-May 2016 to March 2017. During this period, a double diversion will be put in place in the centre of Montlouis, one in the direction Tours-Amboise and another in the direction Amboise-Tours. Due to the closure of a crossroads, it must be noted that 3 times, for 2 days, there will only be one single two-way route. A specific sign will be put up by the town staff. We ask you to take the diversions marked on the map below.

Blue line: Amboise-Tours direction
Red line: Tours-Amboise direction (and Amboise-Tours during the 3 x 2 days when the Plantin crossroads are under construction)
