Major work planned on the bridge this summer
Major work is planned on the Honoré-Mercier bridge this summer including paving acess ramps in the two directions, which may lead to a slowdown in traffic.
Between June and September, 8 traffic hindrances (from Friday evening to Monday morning) will take place on the bridge. During these periods, the access ramps will be alternately closed.
In addition to this work, 15 overnight closures are planned during the week. The precise dates of the work have not yet been finalized.
Other work is also going to be carried out to reinforce piles, paint the metallic structure, build an inspection platform and install a counting system. This work will mainly be carried out under the structure and will not cause any traffic disruption.
Traffic lights will be installed at the intersection of the Wescliff access (by Walmart) and the future rue du Frère-Odilon, with concrete islands and turning lanes. This work will be carried out from May to September 2021. More information to come.
Expansion of the École de formation professionnelle and école Louis-Philippe-Paré
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 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.

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.
For more information:
During the months of April to November 2021, vegetation control work will be carried out on the easement located on the City’s lands. 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.
