The Ville de Châteauguay will begin the demolition and reconstruction of the low wall along the école Marguerite-Bourgeois parking lot located in the area of the boulevard D’Youville and rue Principale. This work will be carried out from Monday, August 8, until September 2022.

Total investment: $340MM
Schedule: May 2021 to September 2024
The phase one of the reconstruction and expansion work at the École de formation professionnelle and École Louis-Philippe-Paré began in May 2021 with the construction of a new synthetic field, scheduled for completion in December 2021. In July 2021, work began on the redevelopment and expansion of the building, which will increase capacity to 2,512 students from Secondary 1 to Secondary 5. The school will eventually benefit from several collaborative and collective spaces, 12 science laboratories, 14 arts spaces, as well as 10 sports facilities, two palestres and a multisport field outside. In addition, a multipurpose auditorium with a capacity of 750 seats will be added and will allow the Châteauguay citizens to benefit from an additional performance hall on the territory.

Conceptual images of the project, for illustrative purposes.
The Châteauguay terminus, located on boulevard Saint-Jean-Baptiste (route 132/138) is being redeveloped.
The project, which is expected to last two years, is divided into several phases. Once the work is completed, the vehicles will have their own entrance and will no longer share the entrance with the buses. The work is carried out by exo.
Phase 1: Sunday, August 28, 11 p.m. until mid-October (between rue Rodrigue and boulevard Industriel)
- From Monday to Friday, dynamic lane management will provide two lanes of traffic on Saint-Jean-Baptiste Boulevard, depending on rush hour. Traffic lanes could be diverted onto the opposite roadway.
- On Saturday and Sunday, only one lane of traffic may be available.
- Access to businesses will be maintained at all times.
- Local traffic could be introduced on rue Rodrigue, between boulevard Saint-Jean-Baptiste and rue Hans-Selye.

Final section of boulevard D’Anjou: preliminary work in 2023
The portion of boulevard D’Anjou between rue Normand and the Arthur-Laberge Bridge has undergone minor repairs as the City will be replacing the sewer lines in 2024. Preliminary work will begin in 2023. To avoid repaving the same section in a short period of time and for cost reasons, only the damaged areas were repaired on a spot basis.
The second phase of this project including the complete paving of the section will begin in spring 2024.
From September 19 to October 28, 2022, the Ville de Châteauguay will undertake pavement work on chemin Saint-Bernard, between rue Jack and the Kahnawake border.
The project includes:
- Roadway foundation replacement work;
- Preparation of the roadsides;
- Pavement work, marking and signage.
During the work period, one lane of traffic will be alternated with presence of signalman. Traffic lights will be in operation at the end of the day. Slowdowns are to be expected in this sector.
Access to chemin Saint-Bernard will be possible at all times. This work will however require a complete closure of both lanes of traffic, overnight. The closure dates will be established in October.

Impact of the work
For the safety of the public, the worksite safety measures may sometimes result in hindrances on roads, bicycle paths, parking lots and properties located within the power line right-of-way. These intermittent hindrances may last anywhere from ten minutes to three days.
The work is not ever expected to lead to a power outage. If such a situation were to occur, however, the affected residents would be informed by an automated telephone messaging system.
A traffic plan has been established, in cooperation with the municipal authorities, to facilitate the movement of cars, cyclists and pedestrians.
The work will be carried out during off-peak hours.
When detours are required, appropriate signage will be in place.
With few exceptions, access to homes will be maintained
The work will comply with the environmental standards in effect.

The objective of these interventions is to promote compatible vegetation by eliminating vegetation that is incompatible with the operation of the system, which could represent a feasibility and safety issue. The purpose of this program is to promote low and sparse vegetation in line rights-of-way.
The work to be carried out includes:
- Cutting of mature trees within the right-of-way.
