Reconstruction of Cartier Avenue

From Salisbury Avenue to Highway 20
April to July 2018
A $1.5M investment

Businesses will remain open. Support local merchants!

Starting April 23, the contractor will make corrections related to the work completed last year. Work will begin at the intersection of Du Bord-du-Lac – Lakeshore Road and continue north. Traffic will be maintained at all times.

Starting on the week of May 7, development work for the curbs and bicycle path on the west side will take place from Val-Soleil Avenue to Salisbury Avenue. Traffic will be maintained at all times, with one lane for each direction.

The next phase will consist of completing the section between Highway 20 and Salisbury Avenue as soon as possible. The intersection of Salisbury and Cartier Avenues will be closed to traffic, except for one southbound lane from Highway 20. Northbound traffic will be redirected onto Sainte-Claire and Lakeview Avenues, as well as Saint-Jean Boulevard. This interruption will be in effect for approximately six weeks.

The fourth phase will take place at the intersection of Highway 20. As requested by the Ministère des Transports, de la Mobilité durable et de l’Électrification des transports (MTMDET), work will take place during the night on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. As the work progresses, we will keep you informed of the detours to take.

In the final phase, a top layer of pavement will be laid, and planting, earthwork, and seeding will be completed. An electronic billboard will also be installed near Salisbury Avenue.

 

Val-Soleil

Pavement repairs will be completed in May. A layer of asphalt approximately 30 centimetres in thickness will be removed, the road foundation will be rebuilt, and the street will be covered with two layers of pavement. The pedestrian path will also be rebuilt between Val-Soleil and Horizon Avenues.

 

Reconstruction of Hymus Boulevard

Between Manfred and Delmar
May to November 2018
A $7.1M investment 

The work will consist of rebuilding the pavement and sidewalks, installing two rainwater retention basins, developing a bicycle path on the south side, and replacing street lighting.

To improve safety in the area, the work will include installing two rainwater retention basins, with a total capacity of 3,000 cubic metres, in order to reduce water accumulation during periods of heavy rainfall, which are becoming more and more frequent due to climate change.

These basins with a total area of 5,250 square metres must be installed at curbside due to existing municipal infrastructure under the pavement. In order to do this, approximately 75 trees will be felled and replaced starting in 2019 during the planting period.

As a preventive measure and to ensure everyone’s safety, traffic detours will be in effect during certain periods. As the work progresses, we will keep you informed of the detours to take.

 

Reconstruction of Labrosse Avenue

From 205 Labrosse to Saint-Jean Boulevard
July to November 2018
A $1.5M investment

The work will consist of rebuilding the pavement and the water supply and sewer systems, developing a bicycle path and a sidewalk on the north, and replacing street lighting.

As a preventive measure and to ensure everyone’s safety, traffic detours will be in effect during certain periods. As the work progresses, we will keep you informed of the detours to take.

 

Reconstruction of Hillcrest Avenue

July to October 2018
A $2.1M investment

The work will consist of installing a new storm sewer, replacing the utility hookups to the property line and the sanitary sewer and water supply systems, laying a new foundation for the road and asphalt, and installing gutters.

Work to install a new storm sewer is also planned in Ovide Park.

A temporary road providing access to Hillcrest Avenue via Hillside Avenue will also be built to the north.

As a preventive measure and to ensure everyone’s safety, traffic detours will be in effect during certain periods. As the work progresses, we will keep you informed of the detours to take.

 

Reconstruction of Rodney and Vincennes Avenues

Vincennes Avenue, between Belmont and Mount Pleasant
May to August 2018
A $2.1M investment

The reconstruction project will consist of replacing the sanitary sewer, water main, and utility hookups to the property line; building a new storm sewer system; laying a new foundation for the road and asphalt; and developing a sidewalk and gutters.

As a preventive measure and to ensure everyone’s safety, traffic detours will be in effect during certain periods. As the work progresses, we will keep you informed of the detours to take.

 

Pipe lining and pavement repairs on Frobisher Avenue

April and August 2018

Pipe lining work will be performed on the water main in late April and will last approximately eight weeks. This phase consists of inserting a lining in the current main in order to extend the use of existing mains while refurbishing the network without completely rebuilding it. A temporary utility hookup will provide drinking water while work is in progress.

Complete pavement repairs are planned in August and will last approximately six weeks. The work will consist of removing the current layer of asphalt up to a depth of 40 centimetres, rebuilding the sidewalks and curbs in the same locations, and spreading a new layer of asphalt.

Traffic will be maintained at all times. Access to driveways will be restricted for several days while the sidewalks and curbs are being rebuilt.

The delay between the two phases is related to work planned in the area during the summer by the Southwest One complex.
