La Sainte-Catherine


La Sainte-Catherine : A street that has been 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!

    The municipal administration wishes to inform residents that subsequent to road work that will be carried out on Avenue McGill College (west side) between Boulevard De Maisonneuve Ouest and Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest from September 20 to 23, 2019, access will be prohibited to heavy vehicles exceeding 40 tonnes, with the exception of emergency vehicles.

    Access prohibited to heavy vehicles exceeding 40 tonnes on Avenue McGill College between Avenue du Président-Kennedy and Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest, starting on September 23, 2019.

    The municipal administration wishes to inform residents that subsequent to road work that will be carried out on Avenue McGill College (west side) between Boulevard De Maisonneuve Ouest and Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest from September 20 to 23, 2019, access will be prohibited to heavy vehicles exceeding 40 tonnes, with the exception of emergency vehicles.


    This road work will make it possible to build a temporary, additional traffic lane on Avenue McGill College. In total, two lanes, each measuring 4.5 metres in width, will be open to traffic (northbound and southbound) for vehicles weighing less than 40 tonnes.


    This mitigation measure is intended to allow for a cohabitation with the REM work site (McGill station) and the Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest redevelopment project, improve mobility in the area and increase access to underground parking.

    Prohibited zone for heavy vehicles exceeding 40 tonnes

    · Avenue McGill College southbound between Avenue du Président-Kennedy and Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest

    · Avenue McGill College northbound, between Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest and Boulevard De Maisonneuve Ouest

    Beginning of the prohibition on heavy vehicle traffic

    Monday, September 23, 2019 at 5 a.m.

    Duration of the prohibition on heavy vehicle traffic

    Until the closure of the REM work site, projected to take place in 2022.

    Impacts

    The added traffic lane will be created by encroaching on the sidewalk on the west side of Avenue McGill College, beneath which lies a major underground building structure. Changing the position of the traffic lanes and the concentration of vehicles loads on these roads requires that access be prohibited to heavy vehicles exceeding 40 tonnes in weight, with the exception of emergency vehicles.

    Starting on September 23, 2019 at 5 a.m., the vehicles concerned will be required to comply with the new signage in place around the work site. Use the GPS Waze or Google Maps applications to optimize your travel in this area.
