Bike paths and pedestrian areas

The city continues to implement its master plan for bicycle lanes. The following work is planned for this year:

  • New multi-purpose off-pavement path on rue Émile-Bouchard, between the Pôle municipal and
    rue Édouard-Lalonde ;
  • New off-street multi-use path along rue Chicoine, between rue Trudeau and rang Saint-Antoine, and continuing on rue de Chenonceau to the new École des Échos;
  • Construction of phase 2 of the multi-purpose track in the Floralies sector. This phase will see the extension of the multi-purpose track from rue des Pivoines to parc des Perce-Neige. Once this phase has been completed, just over 2 km of bicycle lanes from rue des Nénuphars to parc des Perce-Neige. A request for financial MTMD for this project.
  • To improve pedestrian safety on boulevard de la Gare, the city plans to build a new sidewalk on the north side, to complete the missing link between the rue du Manoir intersection and the bus stop further west.
  • To complete the pedestrian pathway between rue des Sureaux and rue des Olivers, paving work will be carried out over the summer.

Infrastructures 

  • Work is scheduled to start this year on the redevelopment of Route de Lotbinière, between Boulevard Harwood and Rue Saint-Jean-Baptiste. The aim is to make this section more user-friendly, with the addition of one-way bicycle paths in each direction, sidewalks, vegetated strips and trees, as well as new lighting. Due to work on the Île-aux-Tourtes bridge and its impact on traffic on boulevard Harwood, the section of work at the intersection of the boulevard and route de Lotbinière must be coordinated with the Ministère des Transports et de la Mobilité durable (MTMD), and may experience delays.
  • Rehabilitation of wastewater pumping stations continues into 2024. Work on the Wildwood station north of Highway 40 was completed in 2023, the City is concentrating this year on the Bourget station, located near the Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau school, and the Dutrisac station, near the intersection of Dutrisac and Saint-Charles. As part of the work, permanent generators will be installed at the stations to ensure smooth operation and uninterrupted service in the event of a power failure.
  • The new wastewater treatment system for the Domaine-en-Haut sector was commissioned in January. Work will be completed this spring, including the addition of fencing and paving of the roadway. This project benefits from financial assistance from the Ministère des Affaires municipales et de l'Habitation, covering part of the cost of the work.
  • The design and preparation of plans and specifications for the construction of the new drinking water reservoir are progressing rapidly. Work is scheduled to start in 2024. The site of the future underground reservoir is located on boulevard de la Cité-des-Jeunes, west of route Harwood.
  • The contractor responsible for the underground infrastructure work on the new Vaudreuil-Soulanges hospital was back in action at the beginning of February to continue the work after a winter break. The work involves continuing to install the water main, this time along the south side of boulevard de la Cité-des-Jeunes, right up to the site of the new drinking water reservoir.
  • The City's Engineering Division team is busy preparing plans and specifications for the rehabilitation of Rue des Loisirs, scheduled for completion in 2024. The work will involve replacing water mains, paving the road and creating a bicycle path to ensure the safety of pedestrians and cyclists near the Sainte-Trinité pavilion of the Papillon-Bleu school.

Paving

  • Work to rehabilitate the road surface and extend the storm sewer on Legault Street is done.

Buildings

  • Fire Station No. 11 – De Lotbinière: Reconstruction work on fire station no. 11 - De Lotbinière is now complete, with the exception of a few finishing touches (including the façade facing rue Saint-Joseph, where the wood will be affixed in the spring). The building has been operational since January 2024.
  • Municipal Hub: Construction work on phase 1 of the municipal hub (library, town hall and public square) is progressing well. The exterior envelope is almost complete, and the contractor is concentrating this winter on the interior work. This spring, work will begin on the public square. The building is still scheduled to open to the public in early 2025. To follow the progress of the work, consult the Municipal Hub page of the website.
  • Last October, the town demolished the presbytery adjacent to the Opticentre St-Jean-Baptiste. The building could not be renovated due to its state of disrepair. The plan is for the land to remain as green space.

Parks

  • Work on the Quatre-Saisons school park began in the fall: demolition of existing structures, installation of water, sanitary and storm sewer lines, and underground electrical conduits. Work will continue until spring 2024. The La Croisée building remains open to the public. An access road has been laid to the rear of the building, from rue Émile-Bouchard.

Ice-breaking boat

As some materials have to be brought to the site by water, an ice-breaking boat will be used on the lac des Deux-Montagnes and in the baie de Vaudreuil. The boat will be in operation weekdays, from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Depending on work and weather conditions, the schedule is subject to change.

These operations will have an impact on ice thickness. It is therefore advisable to check ice thickness before venturing out to fish or simply walk. Vigilance is essential.

Traffic obstruction and management

Between now and next spring, construction work on the new bridge will have little impact on the road network. To find out about current restrictions, consult Quebec511.info, a practical tool to help you plan your trips.

Plan directeur des parcs et espaces verts

Adopted in the spring of 2019, the Parks and Green Spaces Master Plan, covering the period 2018-2025, is an essential tool for managers and elected officials to adequately plan investments in existing and future parks. It allows us to take stock of the various parks on the territory, including the recreational and sports facilities that are located there, and to follow their evolution and use by users.

As of today, where does the City stand on the implementation of this Master Plan?

  • Development of Pierre-Mercure Park: Begun in the fall of 2020, the development work
    Pierre Mercure Park is now complete. The design of this park has been thought out to suit both seniors and their grandchildren. Numerous play modules for children aged 0 to 12 have been introduced, as well as benches, rocking benches and picnic tables. In addition, the installation of awnings and free play areas will suit the needs of the various clienteles. The development was also designed to ensure access to the spaces and most of the park's equipment for people with reduced mobility (adapted picnic tables, adapted play module and sidewalks facilitating movement to the various play areas). In total, more than 80 trees have been planted within the park in order to create, in the long term, an important green space for the sector. The opening of this park allows young and old alike to fully enjoy a quality public space!
  • Redevelopment of Lorne-Worsley Park: Started in the summer of 2021, the development of Lorne-Worsley Lorne-Worsley Park is now complete. The work that has been done is as follows: repair of the parking area, installation of playground equipment and street furniture (shelters covering the players' benches, bike racks, play modules and decorative lighting). Due to supply issues, the following street furniture will be installed in spring 2023: benches and picnic tables. The addition of an exercise module within the dog park was also completed in the spring of 2022. Numerous trees were planted, as well as many shrubs and perennials to create a heavily vegetated environment for the area. 
  • Redevelopment of Quinchien Park: The installation of benches covering the daybands was done in the summer of 2022.
  • Redevelopment of Mallette and Pinault Parks: These parks were redeveloped in the summer of 2022. Street furniture (swings, bike racks, fountain) and new play modules were added. Due to supply issues, the following street furniture will be installed in the spring of 2023: benches, picnic tables and a rocking bench at Mallette Park.
