Development work on a bicycle path between Saint-Jean Boulevard and Paprican Avenue
The Engineering and Buildings Department would like to inform you that a bicycle path will be developed on the municipal right-of-way, between Saint-Jean Boulevard and Paprican Avenue, starting on April 8 until July 12. The work will take place Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.
The location of the new bicycle path is below:
The bicycle path will be lined with trees and shrubs, and nest boxes will be installed to attract birds. Urban furniture and street lamps will be installed to make the area safer and more inviting at all times.
The work is part of our vision to create an interconnected bicycle path network throughout our territory. This new bicycle path will also allow users to access the Greenwich neighbourhood and the future Tony-Proudfoot Park.
In a vision focused on sustainable development, 33 trees will be preserved. Thirteen trees, mostly ash trees, will have to be felled. These were already planned to be replaced due to the emerald ash borer infestation. Around 30 trees and over 130 shrubs will be planted.
Local traffic will be maintained at all times.
Thank you for your cooperation.
