Highway 40 East - Complete closure between Boul. des Anciens-Combattants and Avenue Lee

June 20 until December

The Ministère des Transports informs road users that as part of the reconstruction of the concrete pavement of Highway 40 eastbound in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue and Baie-D'Urfé, the complete closure of the Eastbound carriageway will be in effect as of June 20 at 5:00 a.m.

Between Boulevard des Anciens-Combattants and the Avenue Lee area, eastbound traffic will be diverted onto the westbound carriageway, using contraflow lanes. This scenario will be in place until December, and will resume next year, after a winter break.

The start of the contraflow could be postponed to the next day, 5 a.m., in the event of unfavorable weather conditions or operational constraints.

Speed ​​will be reduced throughout the perimeter of the work site. 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. 


Reminders

• The ongoing work will end next year. Work consists of the reconstruction of the concrete pavement of Highway 40 eastbound between Boulevard des Anciens-Combattants, in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, and the area west of Avenue Lee, in Baie-D'Urfé.

• In addition, the service road of Highway 40 eastbound will be connected between Boulevard des Anciens-Combattants and Avenue Pirie.

• The Ministère will then carry out the segment to Saint-Charles Boulevard in Kirkland. The schedule for completing this other section will be specified as soon as it is known.

Maintaining access to businesses south of Highway 40

• Coming from the west (Vaudreuil-Dorion), a passage will be built to ensure access to shops and businesses in the area of ​​boulevard Morgan, in Baie-D'Urfé, from exit 41 - Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue / Boul. des Anciens-Combattants, since exit 44 - Boul. Morgan, will be inaccessible from the contraflow 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.
