Redesign of Rue Saint-Antoine Ouest

Last updated June 27, 2022
Reading time: 2 min

Reconstruction of water lines under Rue Saint-Antoine Ouest is an opportunity to rethink the street design. Beginning at the end of summer 2022, redesign work will follow reconstruction of the underground pipes.

Rue Saint-Antoine will become a nicer and safer setting, one that will encourage active transportation and transit. In particular, the Express Bike Network (Réseau express vélo, or REV), will run along Saint-Antoine.

Learn all about the project

When?

  • Start of work: end of summer 2022
  • End of work: 2023

Where?

On Rue Saint-Antoine Ouest, between Avenue Atwater and Rue Rose-de-Lima

What? 

The redesign consists mainly of:

  • Addition of a protected unidirectional bike path
  • Widening of the sidewalk on the north side
  • Addition of sidewalk extensions on the south-side cross streets, and granite curbs.
  • Replacement of drains and lampposts
  • Work on traffic lights
  • Plantings

Traffic and parking after the work projects

  • Traffic: Two traffic lanes will be retained
  • Parking: The north side parking lane will have to be removed to allow for wider sidewalks, vegetation and the bike path

Why?

  • Safety of all users is a priority. The new design will allow everyone to travel more easily. Changes to lane widths will result in automobile traffic calming.
  • The new design will offer increased comfort for pedestrians, cyclists and district residents, in particular through the creation of cool islands and traffic calming.
  • Travel will be easier for those using active transportation and transit. Rebalancing the use of space will make travel by bicycle efficient and enjoyable for all levels of cyclists; the new design will allow year-round use.
