Nature of the work

The work consists of building a new railway bridge adjacent to the existing railway bridge to allow REM traffic over the Rivière des Prairies between Montréal and Île-Bigras.

It should be noted that the construction work on the railway bridges on either side of the Rivière des Prairies will be carried out simultaneously.

*The work will take place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Work before and after this period may be necessary to mobilize and demobilize equipment required for the work, for deliveries and site clean-up. 

The work is scheduled to begin in fall 2019* and is described in the table below:
