Start date: Monday, April 29, 2013
End date: late Fall 2013

Sequence of work:

Starting Monday, April 29 and until late August, this work will be carried out along avenue des Pins, from the corner of rue Durocher to the corner of avenue du Dr-Penfield. The work will start on the south side of Pine avenue and then on the north side in a few months' time.

The intersections of Durocher, Aylmer and University will be looked after separately and closed in turn.

Traffic obstructions

  • One westbound lane will be kept open along avenue des Pins; blocked eastbound between Dr-Penfield and Durocher.
  • Avenue du Dr-Penfield: local traffic for McGill University, the Royal Victoria Hospital and the STM; motorists will have to turn west at avenue des Pins.
  • Some STM bus routes will have to be modified. Information: STM-INFO (514 786-4636), or see map below.
  • Traffic slowdowns are expected. Police officers and the contractor's workers will be on hand to ensure safety and a smooth flow of traffic.
  • Pedestrian sidewalks will be maintained and kept safe on both sides of avenue des Pins; however, they will be partially blocked, one side at a time.
