Preparatory work in the Marc-Cantin Street area

Beginning April 3rd, for approximately four weeks
Montréal (Downtown)

Geotechnical drilling in preparation for the future REM infrastructure will begin April 3rd. This important step will provide critical data that will help to guide NouvLR, the consortium entrusted with the REM’s construction, in designing the REM structures.


Nature of the work

The work will involve carrying out geotechnical drilling to assess soil composition and resistance—a prerequisite to designing and constructing the various infrastructures.



Closure of short stretches of Marc-Cantin Street:

  • There will be alternating track closures, with only one closed at a time, to maintain the flow of traffic
  • Obstructions will follow the advancement of the geotechnical campaign
  • Signalmen will take turns directing traffic
