Widening of Grande Alléé: Work Postponed until 2018
The project to widen Grande Allée that was scheduled for the summer 2017 has been postponed until the spring of 2018 due to a delay in obtaining an environmental order from Quebec's Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment and the Fight agains Climate Change (MDDELCC).
The widening work, which will cost an estimated $20 million, is a joint project being carried out by the cities of Brossard and Longueuil.
Grande Allée will be widened between Autoroute 30 and Rue Baudelaire. It will be increased to three lane in each direction, plus a median strip. One lane in each direction will be reserved for the Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL)'s Service rapide par bus (SRB). Landscaping work will be done alongside the road to help enhance the area's appearance. A cycling path will also be built to encourage active mobility.
Preliminary Work in Progress
Restoration work on the Ruisseau Daigneault culvert, which has led to the temporary closure of Grande Allée between Boulevard Chevrier and the railway, will be completed by the end of this summer. The road should reopen in September 2017.
See the Construction Notices on the info-travaux page of the Brossard website.
