Map Of All The Construction Happening In Montreal This Summer

It's the oldest joke in the book, that Montreal doesn't have 4 seasons, it has two: Winter and Construction. Well, if this map of all the construction that is planned to go down in La Ville aux Cent Construction Sites is any indication, we're in for a doozy this "summer".

Below is a map of all the planned construction that will be going on around Montreal's core throughout the summer. Further down you will find a close-up of just the downtown area.

  • A new tunnel pipeline to supply the Atwater drinking water plant
  • Laurier ave West infastructure rehabilitation and redevelopment
  • Laurentian-Lachapelle redevelopment and security project
  • Viger Square redevelopment
  • Rue Saint-Paul redevelopment

  • Ste-Catherine Street West overhaul
  • Plaza St-Hubert
  • boulevard Pie-IX
  • rue Jarry
  • rue St-Grégoire
  • avenue Papineau, between Gautheir and Marianne

According to thecity's website, there is a "mobility squad" being sent out this summer, to "patrol Montreal's main arteries to quickly intervene on any problematic obstacles."

Here is a close up of just the downtown core's planned construction sites. You can see the whole map here.

According tothe CBC, city council member Sylvain Ouellet is intending to be "more selective" about construction projects, particularly downtown, which has reached a "saturation point" in terms of ongoing projects. 

While it's easy to gripe, we were pretty pissed about the potholes all winter... so we've gotta at least let the city attempt to make it up to us this summer by filling them... though the above method seems a little... haphazard.

We will, of course, keep you posted with any updates to ongoing or new construction projects in the city.
