Preparatory work on Highway 40 and service roads

Road
April to September 2019 From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Montréal (Centre and Airport)

Where: Highway 40 East and West and service roads, between Henri-Bourassa Boulevard West and Saint-Régis Boulevard

 

Nature of the work

Construction of the elevated structure continues and will cross Highway 40 East and West as well as the service roads. The first phase of the elevated structure is the drilling of caisson piles, beginning in April in this sector. Constructing the piles is necessary in order to build the pillars for the new elevated structure on Highway 40 on which the REM will ultimately run.

Following this work, the formwork and concreting will allow for the installation of the pillars and pierheads to accommodate the concrete segments to complete the elevated structure.

The obstructions will all be located between Henri-Bourassa Boulevard and Saint-Régis Boulevard.

The work is scheduled to take place between April and September, during the day. The work is divided into four phases to ensure a clear understanding of the various obstructions:

Phase 1 (April): Drilling and construction of the caisson piles between Highway 40 West and the Highway 40 West service road

  • Closure of the left lane of the Highway 40 West service road
  • Narrowing and deviation of lanes on Highway 40 West and East
  • Closure of shoulder where bus traffic is permitted on Highway 40 West and East
  • A variable message sign on the Highway 40 West service road will advise motorists of the obstruction in place

Phase 2 (May): Drilling and construction of the caisson piles between Highway 40 West and East:

  • Narrowing and deviation of lanes on Highway 40 West and East
  • Closure of shoulder where bus traffic is permitted on Highway 40 West and East

Phase 3 (May): Drilling and construction of the caisson piles between Highway 40 East and the Highway 40 East service road

  • Closure of the left lane of the Highway 40 East service road
  • Narrowing and deviation of lanes on Highway 40 West and East
  • Closure of shoulder where bus traffic is permitted on Highway 40 West and East

Phase 4 (June to September): Construction of pillars and pierheads between Highway 40 West and East and between the East and West service roads

  • Narrowing and deviation of lanes on Highway 40 West and East
  • Closure of shoulder where bus traffic is permitted on Highway 40 West and East
  • The map below illustrates where traffic disruptions will occur:

*Work will take place from 7:00 a.m. to 7 p.m. Work outside this time period may be necessary to mobilize and demobilize equipment required for the work and to clean up the site.

 

Anticipated impacts and mitigation measures

Just as for any construction site, the work will generate impacts including noise, vibrations, dust, frequent use of trucks and traffic obstructions. Mitigation measures will be implemented to minimize the impacts. The REM project office and NouvLR consortium’s goal is to prevent or minimize impact on surrounding residents as much as possible and ensure safety by implementing all appropriate measures.
