What Montreal’s Sainte-Catherine Street Will Look Like In 2017

Free Wi-Fi and heated sidewalks are just the begining.
What Montreal’s Sainte-Catherine Street Will Look Like In 2017

Sainte-Catherine street is about to get one hell of a makeover as part of Mayor Denis Coderre's plan to revitalize the city. On May 6th, the Coderre Administration announced a plan they call "Montréal, ville intelligente et numérique" 2015-2017 which includes plans to provide free Wi-Fi all over the city.

It seems like the first steps of the project are already in the works because yesterday (May 13th) Mayor Coderre said he wants to install widened,  heated sidewalks that can easily be converted to accommodate cars, pedestrians, and even food trucks, depending on the weather.

The first phase of the project is set to start in 2017 and will take 2 years. It would convert Sainte-Catherine street from Mansfield to Bleury, and the second phase would run from Mansfield to Atwater.
