At least one familiar sight is set to return next week. The road construction season in Quebec is officially back on May 11. The industry has been given the go-ahead to resume operations. "As of May 11, the entire construction industry will be able to resume its activities," the Ministry of Transport wrote in a statement. Before the health crisis began, 1,300 roadworks were planned throughout the year.\nAll road projects in the province were put on hold when the pandemic began.\n"The resumption of construction sites is an engine of economic development for all of Quebec," said the Ministry.\nOn every project, strict health measures will be enforced to ensure the safety of all workers.\nThough many drivers have gotten used to roads free of construction and traffic over the past couple of months, the Ministry reminds all Quebecers that they must be extra careful in the next few weeks as construction resumes on the road network.\n"I wish a good return to all our workers on construction sites across Quebec. I am convinced that motorists will exercise caution and respect the instructions related to construction sites," said François Bonnardel, Minister of Transport.\nThe CNESST outlined its guidelines for workers and construction companies to follow as they gradually resume work.\nConstruction workers will be required to validate their health at the beginning of each workday. While working, all workers must maintain a two-meter distance whenever possible.\n#COVID19 - Au Québec, en date du 8 mai 2020 à 12 h 45, la situation est la suivante :36 150 cas confirmés234 769 analyses négatives (cas infirmés)1 827 personnes hospitalisées2 725 décèsPour en savoir plus sur la situation au Québec : https://t.co/fiqW5E4y8R— Santé Québec (@sante_qc) May 8, 2020\nWorkers won't be required to wear personal protective equipment unless they're in situations where they can't keep a two-meter distance.\nA mask and goggles or a visor will be mandatory in these instances.\nREAD ALSO: The STM Has Released Its Plan For Deconfinement & Will Give Face Coverings To Customers\nIn the Montreal area, the road construction projects set to resume on May 11 are the:\nreconstruction of the chemin du Ruisseau Nord bridge on Autoroute 20 in Saint-Mathieu-de-Beloeil;\n\n\npaving and preferential measures for buses on Autoroute 30 in Longueuil, Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville, and Boucherville;\n\n\nrepairs to the Montée Cadieux overpass on Autoroute 40 in Vaudreuil-Dorion;\n\n\nrehabilitation and reconstruction of the Autoroutes 13 and 40 interchanges;\n\n\nrehabilitation of the Louis-Bisson Bridge on Autoroute 13 between Montreal and Laval; and\n\n\npaving and repair of the roadway between Provencher Boulevard and Highway 520 on Autoroute 40.\n⚠️ Employeurs et travailleurs, nous avons préparé une trousse d’outils rassemblant les principales normes sanitaires à mettre en place pour réduire le risque lié à la COVID-19 au travail. #COVID19 #SST #TrousseCOVID19https://t.co/mlW3mNoSpo pic.twitter.com/CK8ENSkumn— CNESST (@CNESST) April 28, 2020\nOther sites will become active over the course of the season, according to a statement from the Ministry.\nDans quelques semaines, on devrait pouvoir commencer à rouvrir graduellement le Québec.
