Although the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion maintains its infrastructure on an ongoing basis, traffic can be impeded by work or events. Every effort is made to reduce the impact on pedestrians, cyclists, residents and motorists.
Here you will find a list of road work projects under way so that you can change your usual route if need be. You'll also be informed about projects coming up in the next few months.
Note that dates are subject to change, as project schedules may be affected by factors such as weather.
2018 Upcoming work
- The bike path on Henry-Ford Street will be extended to White Street, which will be equipped with a two-way bike path that reaches Cité-des-Jeunes Boulevard. Construction is expected to take place this summer. The new overpass crossing Quinchien River, for its part, will be added in the fall.
- Another cyclist and pedestrian link will be added to connect Des Nénuphars Street and Cité-des-Jeunes Boulevard, enabling users to cross Quinchien River. Construction of the overpass is expected to start in late 2018 or early 2019.
- In collaboration with the Réseau de transport métropolitain (RTM), the City is currently working on the initial plan for a pedestrian and cyclist crossing connecting Muguets and Asters streets. If all goes well, the project could be carried out in 2018.
- A multi-functional bike path will be added to Harwood Boulevard, between Taschereau Bridge and Saint-Jean-Baptiste Avenue. This new addition will help ensure the safety of users.
- Both Dumberry Road and the bike path constructed last fall will be paved this summer. This new development will enable cyclists to reach Des Chenaux Road from Saint-Charles Avenue.
- The construction of municipal infrastructures required for the extension of Phil-Goyette and Maurice-Richard streets has been planned for the fall.
- The project aimed at widening Cité-des-Jeunes Boulevard is well under way. Work will begin this summer to widen the section between Marc-Aurèle-Fortin Avenue and Bill-Durnan Street to four lanes, including a bike path. Construction is carried out in partnership with the RTM, which will work on the railway crossing. As part of the second phase of the project, the City is currently working on plans and specifications for the portion located between Bill-Durnan and Henry-Ford streets.
- In the spring, we will proceed with construction of the municipal parking lot located behind the new building of the MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges, located on Harwood Boulevard.
- A new water playground was erected last fall, at the corner of Saint-Charles Avenue and Paul-Gérin-Lajoie Road. This project was supported through a subsidy of $150,000 provided by the Government of Canada as part of Canada’s 150th anniversary. This summer, the City will be doing some landscaping work on this particular site.
- Last year, Canada 150 also provided a $275,000 subsidy for the extension of the bi-directional bike path on Saint-Charles Avenue between Dumberry Road and Dollard Street. The work will be completed in the fall, at which time the bike path will be ready to use.
- In March and April 2018, the construction of the Rue des Pruches (± 140.00 meters), between Marier Avenue and the existing Rue des Pruches, will be made.
