Rehabilitation of Riverside (phase 6)
Postponement of work
Phase 6 of the rehabilitation of Riverside had to be postponed until spring 2019 due to circumstances beyond our control. Thank you for your understanding!
Phase 1: summer 2019
The area for this phase of the work will include Riverside Drive between Hickson and Alexandra avenues. The intersection of Alexandra Avenue and Riverside Drive will not be affected during phase 1.
Phase 2: fall 2019
Work will continue between Hickson and Alexandra avenues, but will extend to the intersection of Alexandra Avenue and Riverside Drive. The work was divided into two phases to ensure that the intersection is closed to traffic for the shortest time possible.
The starting date for the work will be confirmed in the spring once the contract has been awarded to the contractor who will carry out the work.
The second course of asphalt will be laid and the landscaping done in spring 2020.
To make it easier for you to get around during the work on Riverside Drive, two detour routes have been planned according to the progress of the work. We recommend following the signs that will be posted soon, as they will indicate the best detour for vehicles.
For more information, you can call the RTL’s Customer Service Department at 450-463-0131 from Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m., as well as on weekends and holidays between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
Trenchless pipe installation
The most important aspect of the rehabilitation of this portion of Riverside Drive will be the installation of a new 1800 mm-diameter stormwater drainage pipe using a trenchless method. This pipe will be laid at a depth of approximately 9 metres below ground and will pass under overpasses belonging to both the Ministère des Transports, de la Mobilité durable et de l’Électrification des transports (MTMDET) and CN.
This major project will make it possible in the coming years to proceed with the separation of the combined sewer systems and better serve the sector located between highway 112 (Sir-Wilfrid-Laurier Boulevard) and the Country Club of Montreal golf course.
To learn more, you can view the PowerPoint presentation (in French only) that was shown at the information meeting held on February 8.
