Highway 40 East - Concrete pavement reconstruction work

From May 3, 2021

Roadway reconstruction work on Highway 40 eastbound in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue and Baie-D'Urfé will be undertaken as of May 3, 2021. This major project, carried out in different phases, will last three years.

Significant roadblocks are to be expected, including the long-term complete closure of Highway 40 eastbound.

Eastbound traffic will be diverted onto the westbound carriageway, using contraflow lanes. In order to reduce the repercussions for road users, dynamic lane controls will allow three lanes of traffic to be maintained in the rush hour direction, and two lanes in the opposite direction. Partial daytime or full night closures are to be expected from the start of work on Highway 40 or in the Boulevard des Anciens-Combattants interchange.

This contract involves rebuilding the concrete pavement of a first highway segment between Boulevard des Anciens-Combattants in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue and Avenue Lee in Baie-D'Urfé and extending the lane of service to Highway 40 eastbound between Boulevard des Anciens-Combattants and Avenue Pirie.

The Ministère des transports will then rebuild the concrete pavement of the section of Highway 40 eastbound to Saint-Charles Boulevard in Kirkland. The schedule for completing this second portion will be specified later.

Traffic management

• Complete long-term closure of Highway 40 eastbound between Boulevard des Anciens-Combattants and the entrance from Boulevard Morgan and Avenue Lee.

  • Road users coming from Boulevard des Anciens-Combattants will be able to access Highway 40 eastbound through a specially designed corridor.

• Contraflow lanes on Highway 40 westbound between Chemin Sainte-Marie and Boulevard des Anciens-Combattants.

  • Speed ​​will be reduced throughout the perimeter of the site.
    Maintaining access to businesses and residents south of Highway 40.

• Coming from the west (Vaudreuil-Dorion), a passage area will be set up to ensure access to businesses in the area of ​​boulevard Morgan in Baie-D'Urfé and to residences on rue Gérard-Guindon in Kirkland from exit 41 - Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue / Boul. des Anciens-Combattants, since exit 44 - Boul. Morgan and exit 49 - Ch. Ste-Marie won't be accessible from the contraflow lanes on Highway 40.

Other press releases relating to this project will be issued, in particular to announce the start of the contraflow lanes on Highway 40.

Environmental mitigation measures :

The REM project aims to integrate harmoniously with its immediate surroundings, which is why more than 85% of the work will be carried out on public domain, on existing road and railway rights-of-way. At the same time, however, some brush clearing and deforestation work will be realized in two sequences, before March 1st and after August 15th, which are necessary so the REM rail infrastructure, stations and access roads can be constructed. In the next few weeks, branch removal and tree and shrub cutting will take place in your sector.

Mitigation measures :

  • Work will be performed outside the nesting season (March 1st to August 15th)
  • These activities will be supervised and coordinated by our environmental experts, and will follow industry best practices and applicable standards and regulations;
  • At-risk plant species and trees will be relocated;
  • Through a reforestation program, the same number of trees that were cut in temporary construction zones will be replanted, and an additional 10% will be planted in the municipal territory or borough where the trees were cut.
