Sainte-Dorothée station is located in Laval, in the same location as the existing exo train station. It is characterized in particular by a plant embankment. Avenue des Bois has been redeveloped to run under the REM tracks and connect to Bord-de-l’Eau Road, while Graveline Street has been transformed into a dead-end street. Chemin-de-Fer Street has also been extended to Des Bois Avenue north of the park-and-ride lot.
