Street Lamp Replacement on Boul. des Anciens-Combattants

Will will be replacing the lamposts in the central island of boul. des Anciens-Combattants (between Demers and Caserne 51) from October 22 to November 2, from 7 am to 5 pm.

To do this, one lane per direction will be hampered at the center of the boulevard. However, the southbound lane (direction A-20) will be open from 3 pm to improve traffic fluidity.

 

REM Preparatory Work

Date: Beginning early October
Where: At the junction of A40 and chemin Sainte-Marie
Information: rem.info/en/montreal-west

Nature of the work:
In mid-September, NouvLR, the consortium in charge of building the Réseau express métropolitain (REM), will begin work at various sites in the West Island of Montréal, in preparation for major work slated to begin later this fall.

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 existing road and railway rights-of-way. At the same time, however, some brush clearing and deforestation work will be 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.

Impacts and mitigation measures:

  • Work will be performed outside the nesting season;
  • 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 or compensated with new plantings;
  • 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;
  • Through a voluntary partnership with Jour de la Terre and the 375000arbres.org program, 250,000 trees will be planted to compensate for the GHG emissions produced during the construction phase;
  • The image below shows the sectors where site cleanup work is required:

 

Paving Work on rue Christie

From October 9th to 29th 2018, the City will proceed with paving work on Christie Street (between du Collège and Sainte-Anne).

The work will take place Monday to Friday from 7 am to 5 pm.

To limit the impact on traffic, here are the detour paths that have been determined:

Important Information

Parking
Residents affected by the works can get a free sticker that will allow them to park in the du Collège parking lot. Stickers will be distributed door to door Monday, September 10th and Tuesday, September 11th. After this, residents who wish to have a parking sticker will have to go to City Hall during office hours.

Waste Collection
The contractor is responsible for the management of waste collection. People living in the area will need to identify their bins with their name and address so that they can be returned to the right place.

Mail
Mail destined to inaccessible addresses will be redirected to the post office located at 88 Rue Sainte-Anne. Canada Post is distributing letters with the details to the people affected by this measure.

 

Asphalting Work on Highway 40 East

The Ministère des transports will proceed with asphalting work on Highway 40 eastbound, between Lee Avenue in Baie-D'Urfé and Saint-Charles Boulevard in Kirkland.

This work will take place until mid-November 2018 and will be done at night between 10 pm and 5 am.

This project requires complete night closures of highway 40 eastbound between exit 41 and the entrance to Saint-Charles Boulevard.

The closure involves a detour path on boulevard des Anciens-Combattants going south towards Highway 20.

 

Restauration Works on the Water Tower

The City is undertaking repairs to the tower and the water reservoir. The works, which will extend until mid-November, consist of cleaning, repairing and painting the tower and the reservoir.

No streets will be blocked for the duration of the work. Residents of the area can expect noise and dust from the sandblast used to clean the tower. The site will be in place from 7 am to 5 pm, Monday to Friday, with the exception of the two weeks of construction holidays.
