From November 17 to 29, 2021: Access closed to Cartier Avenue and Highway 20 due City of Montréal work

The City of Montréal will be carrying out work prior to the assessment of the main water line requiring the complete closure of Cartier Avenue, between Highway 20 and Salisbury Avenue, from November 17 to 29, 2021.

This work is part of the assessment process of Pointe-Claire’s main water line connecting the drinking water plant to the reservoir, located north of Highway 20. The work is to determine the condition of the line in order to prevent its deterioration and ensure the distribution of sufficient quantities of quality drinking water.

We encourage drivers to take Saint-Jean Boulevard and Du Bord-du-Lac – Lakeshore Road during the work. The road will remain accessible to pedestrians and cyclists at all times. Walkways will be set up to provide access to buildings and stores. Parking at the CLSC will be accessible from the south entrance. Buses on Cartier Avenue will take Salisbury, Waverley and Lakeview avenues to get to Saint-Jean Boulevard.

This work could possibly cause discoloured water throughout the territory of the City. This discolouration results from pressure fluctuations in the drinking water supply system that cause mineral particles that are naturally stuck to the walls of the pipe to become detached. It is recommended to let the water run for a few minutes (about 10 to 15 minutes) until it is clear again before using it. The water remains drinkable unless specified otherwise.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
