Getting off the island?

does anyone know the best way to get off the island on the southeast side? Before midterms came up 2 weeks ago i was able to go to the F1 track, down the seaway, cross the canal at a lock into St. Catherine and then ride down to New York and back, but they’ve closed ALL the gates (trust me i hopped the first few but then i ran into one that was too tall) to go onto the seaway.

any suggestions cuz im really trying to put off going onto the trainer for base miles? Or does anyone know of good routes for 200km+ rides w/ not too much traffic?

The only bridge I really know of is the Jaques Cartier Bridge which has a bike path. Let me know when you plan on the rides though.
