Griffintown is undergoing unprecedented urban development. To respond to its densification and provide its residents with a better urban experience, public spaces are being redesigned and infrastructure is being upgraded in 2021.
Current work projects may have an impact on your daily life. Here is what you need to know about current work site activity, its impacts and the alternative measures offered by Montréal.
