Road obstruction on Marc-Cantin Street

Starting April 3, 2019, for approximately 4 weeks Day and night, on weekdays
Montréal (Downtown)

Nature of the work

The construction of the REM’s elevated structure continues in the Marc-Cantin area. In April 2019, the structure’s pillars at the intersection of Fernand-Séguin and Marc-Cantin Streets will be built, over about a four-week period.


Impacts and mitigation measures

Larrying out this work will involve a modification to local road and pedestrian traffic.

  • A complete closure of Marc-Cantin Street between Gaétan Laberge Boulevard and Fernand-Séguin Street is required.
  • For MELS Studios: a new lane will be created at the MELS exit toward Fernand-Séguin Street, to facilitate traffic toward downtown. And a new sidewalk will be built for pedestrians to use. Appropriate signage will be installed.
  • For 1555 Carrie-Derick Street: the parking spaces located on the east side of Fernand-Séguin Street will be moved to the west side.
  • The bus stop for the 74 line will be maintained on Carrie-Derrick at the intersection with Fernand-Séguin Street.
  • This work will generate noise and dust. Environmental experts will monitor noise and air quality to ensure that project criteria are met. Mitigation measures may be implemented if necessary.

*Please note that due to the nature of the activities being performed, work cannot be interrupted while it is in progress; it must be completed so as to maintain the integrity of the existing infrastructure. Should this situation arise, the work period will be extended to complete the work already begun.
