Road Work

At its regular meeting on February 1, 2021, Municipal Council has approved a list of maintenance and improvement projects to be carried out on municipal roads and other infrastructure in 2021. These projects will be carried out based on available monies and priorities established on the basis of:

  • Public safety issues
  • Road drainage
  • Grading set out in the 2009–2014 contingency plan by the outside firm
  • Work required as a result of the 2017 and 2019 floods
  • Short- and medium-term development projects
Note: Municipal Council can change the work plan depending on circumstances, emergencies, other considerations or opportunities.

            Modifications to the project following new environmental regulations («  Règlement sur l’encadrement d’activités en fonction de leur impact sur l’environnement » ) that have resulted in additional delays.

            The rehabilitation work, including stabilization, excavation, drainage, and paving, should be completed in the summer of 2022.
