    Your travel during the work

    • To complete these projects, partial and complete street closures will be required, in co-ordination with the different work phases. For all details on the work phases, view the works notice to residents and the traffic map and commercial delivery zones.
    • Pedestrian access to residences and businesses will be maintained at all times. Work managers will closely collaborate with businesses and institutions to minimize the temporary obstructions of their buildings and the impacts on their day-to-day activities.

    About 20 different partners are working together to reduce the impacts of the road and transit projects on traffic. View the English version of the website to plan your trips.

    Parking around work sites

    You can use the P$ Montréal Centre-Ville mobile application developed by the agence de Mobilité durable in collaboration with Montréal. This application is designed to make things easier for motorists and respond to parking issues, in particular during work projects
