La Sainte-Catherine


La Sainte-Catherine : A major Montréal street being revitalized

Beginning in 2021, Rue Sainte-Catherine will offer you a brand-new experience in downtown Montréal!

The sidewalks of the future Rue Sainte-Catherine, with only one lane of traffic running between them, will be widened to provide more comfort for pedestrians. This major street will become a connector between the public spaces around it, including the square in front of St. James United Church, Square Phillips, Avenue McGill College, Square Dorchester and the area around the Guy-Concordia station.

As well, existing green spaces will be consolidated to increase plant cover and create cool spaces for Montrealers during the heat of summer. This major street, which can be made pedestrian-only depending on the time of year and events, will become one of Montréal's star sites!

  • Start of road and sidewalk work on Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest

    8 days ago

    The start of road and sidewalk work on Montréal’s iconic commercial strip marks an important milestone in its continuing transformation aimed at offering Montrealers and visitors alike an attractive and inviting public space.

    The underground infrastructure work, which started in February 2019, has now been completed on Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest, between Rue Saint-Alexandre and Rue De Bleury.

    The start of road and sidewalk work on Montréal’s iconic commercial strip marks an important milestone in its continuing transformation aimed at offering Montrealers and visitors alike an attractive and inviting public space.

    The underground infrastructure work, which started in February 2019, has now been completed on Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest, between Rue Saint-Alexandre and Rue De Bleury. As of the end of July, the general contractor, Côté Jardin Inc., an urban development leader, will undertake the road and sidewalk work on this section of the street. The new road will consist of concrete paving blocks as a continuation of the Quartier des spectacles, and the sidewalks will be widened by 60% to reach close to six metres in width, thus leaving more space for pedestrians and for the construction of terraces and the presentation of outdoor events. The road and sidewalk work will continue in 2020 up to Boulevard Robert-Bourassa. As of 2021, Montrealers will be able to make the most of the new developments completed under Phase 1 of the project. Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest will offer an all-new urban experience in downtown Montréal, with a renewed focus on greening with the addition of many trees, to go along with rest areas, distinctive street furniture, and a range of integrated intelligent urban systems.

    Underground infrastructure work (sewers, water and gas mains, public utilities) beneath Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest, between Boulevard Robert-Bourassa and Rue Place Phillips, is close to 70 per cent completed. The work operations – which consist of rebuilding century-old underground infrastructures and modernizing electrical and telecommunications services – are being carried out jointly with partners, notably the Commission des services électriques de Montréal (CSEM), Bell Canada and Énergir, as part of an integrated approach.

    As part of the Sainte-Catherine Ouest project, the city wishes to advise you that a water service interruption is scheduled:

    Date and schedule

    On the night of Monday, July 8 to Tuesday July 9 between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.

    Perimeter concerned

    Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest/Rue Aylmer/Rue Mayor/Rue Saint-Alexandre

    **Door hangers will be placed 48 hours in advance to notify the affected buildings occupants.**

    Nature of the work operations

    A water service interruption is required on the low-pressure network in order to connect the new water service system to the existing network.

    Impacts

    Water colour: The interruption and resumption of water service could cause the water to become reddish in colour. This colour does not pose a health risk.

    What to do if the water become reddish in colour

    Reddish water can cause certain annoyances, including stains on washed clothing. In order to avoid any damage, the city recommends that you check the water colour before using your washing machine or any other machine that uses water. If the water is red, let the cold water run for a few minutes until it is clear again.


    Thank you for your cooperation.
