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!

  • Concrete measures to facilitate parking in the work zone spanned by the Sainte-Catherine Ouest project

    2 months ago

    As part of the Sainte-Catherine Ouest project, the Société de Développement CommercialDestination Centre-Ville, in partnership with the city and Ville-Marie, has announced a pair of measures to facilitate access to Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest for the duration of the work operations on Boulevard Robert-Bourassa and Rue De Bleury.

    Nature of the work

    A water service interruption on the low-pressure network is required to install the valve chambers for the reconstruction of the water supply system.

    Impacts

    The interruption and resumption of water service could cause the water to become reddish in colour. This colour does not pose health risk. Before using your washing machine or any other appliance that uses water, let the cold water run for a few minutes until it is clear.

    "Information on water service interruptions”

    The exceptional number of water service interruptions over the past two weeks may be attributed to three factors:

    1) The existing water mains and sewers beneath Rue Sainte-Catherine date back to the 1890s. These infrastructures have thus deteriorated significantly and are more susceptible to breaking during work operations.

    2) The cold causes the water mains in these aging infrastructures to break more easily, thus obliging the city to impose water service interruptions so that emergency repairs can be carried out to avoid flooding.

    3) Water service interruptions are planned as part of reconstruction work on underground infrastructures. Door hangers will be placed 48 hours in advance to notify building occupants.

    When it is possible to control a water leak, our teams try to schedule repairs outside of store and office business hours.

    The municipal administration is taking all the necessary measures to minimize the impacts that these work operations may have. Thank you for your invaluable collaboration.
