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 Future Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest: An “Intelligent” Street

    2 months ago

    The new Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest will soon feature a range of smart systems that will help usher Montréal into in the digital era.

    The municipal administration is taking full advantage of the work in progress to install intelligent lighting systems that make it easier to adjust the light and reduce light pollution.

    Intelligent traffic lights and vehicle and pedestrian counters, connected to the Centre de gestion de la mobilité urbaine (traffic monitoring centre), will in turn promote optimal traffic management. In particular, these systems enable immediate reaction time. If a vehicle breaks down...

    The new Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest will soon feature a range of smart systems that will help usher Montréal into in the digital era.

    The municipal administration is taking full advantage of the work in progress to install intelligent lighting systems that make it easier to adjust the light and reduce light pollution.

    Intelligent traffic lights and vehicle and pedestrian counters, connected to the Centre de gestion de la mobilité urbaine (traffic monitoring centre), will in turn promote optimal traffic management. In particular, these systems enable immediate reaction time. If a vehicle breaks down in traffic, for example, the traffic lights can be adjusted and synchronized accordingly. On a larger scale, the data collected will also serve to inform the development of transportation policies that are better adapted to actual needs.

    Public WiFi access terminals will also be added across the area for the benefit of abutting owners and visitors. Additionally, the road repairs will provide an opportunity to deploy a fibre optic cable network connected to the Quartier des spectacles control system along the length of Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest. Its role: To simplify the organization of events on the street.

    And things are just getting started: The project also calls for the integration of intelligent systems for residual materials management, snow removal, displays, pollution detection, and leaks in the water distribution system… Better still, these new infrastructures have the flexibility to accommodate systems that still exist solely in our imaginations!

  • Phase 1 of the Sainte-Catherine Ouest project progressing well

    5 months ago

    The work operations on Rue Sainte-Catherine between Boulevard Robert-Bourassa and Rue De Bleury, first undertaken by the city almost two months ago, are progressing well. In spite of the challenges faced by work crews, close to 20% of the work is complete, according to the planned schedule.

    The work is being performed in integrated fashion with the project partners, the Commission des services électriques de Montréal (CSEM), Bell Canada and Énergir.

    The work is being performed in integrated fashion with the project partners, the Commission des services électriques de Montréal (CSEM), Bell Canada and Énergir. It is aimed at reconstructing century-old underground infrastructures and updating electrical and telecommunications services in order to transform Rue Sainte-Catherine into a modern thoroughfare that rivals those of the world’s great cities in the 21st century.

    As of April 12, 2019, many of the new secondary water mains in the supply system are already in place. Work on the main water supply system will start in mid-April. Reconstruction work on public utilities (CSEM and Bell Canada) is also progressing well. Work operations aimed at improving Énergir’s gas network have are underway and will continue over the next few weeks.

    Crews are on site, seven days a week and around the clock when required, to ensure that the work operations run smoothly while minimizing the impacts across the area.
