This section reports on sporadic obstructions on the territory.
A major repair to the aqueduct network will require the closure of a short section of avenue Saint-Charles, northbound, between rue Sainte-Angélique and rue Sainte-Julie on December 11 and 12. The work will take place outside rush hour, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. The detour route will be via rue Sainte-Angélique, rue Louise-Josephte and rue Sainte-Julie.
An obstruction will take place on rue Émile-Bouchard on December 12, between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., at rue Édouard-Lalonde. Traffic will alternate with the help of flagmen at the intersection of Édouard-Lalonde and Émile-Bouchard streets.
Route Harwood and Route de Lotbinière
Connection work will be carried out at 230, boul. Harwood. As a result, the following road closures are planned:
- December 6 from 7 a.m. to December 7, 5 p.m.: Complete closure of both directions on rue Chicoine between rue Ange-Émile-Séguin and route de Lotbinière. A pedestrian crossing will remain available on rue Chicoine.
- December 11 from 9 p.m. to December 12, 5 a.m.: Complete closure of the ramp on route de Lotbinière leading to autoroute 20 (boul. Harwood), and of the right lane on autoroute 20 (boul. Harwood) eastbound between route de Lotbinière and rue Ange-Émile-Séguin.
- The ramp between Route de Lotbinière and Autoroute 20 East will be closed from November 27 to December 12 inclusively, to remove the sheet piles in front of 230 Boulevard Harwood.
- Work on the construction of an off-road multi-use path on rue Valois, between route Harwood and 8e Avenue, was completed in October. The city obtained financial assistance from the Ministère des Transports et de la Mobilité durable (MTMDQ).
- A multi-use path linking rue des Nénuphars to rue des Pivoines, in the right-of-way along the railroad line, was completed this autumn. The town also received financial assistance from the MTMDQ for this project.
- Work on a pedestrian path linking rue des Cascades to the footbridge on rue des Nénuphars was completed this autumn. This new passageway provides a link to the footbridge over the Quinchien River to the Boulevard de la Cité-des-Jeunes.
- The city received financial assistance from the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal for an active transportation study in the TOD sector of the Vaudreuil train station. A consultant was commissioned to carry out a diagnostic study and propose optimizations phased over time. Over the next few years, these proposals will be progressively implemented. Work will start in 2023.
- The rehabilitation of numerous pumping stations in the wastewater network continues. The Dutrisac and Roche stations are currently the subject of mandates to prepare plans and specifications for their rehabilitation. The Roche station is located at the corner of rue Joseph-Carrier and avenue Saint-Charles. As for the Bourget station, near the Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau school, the call for tenders for the rehabilitation work took place in the fall, and work will begin in 2024.
- Work to replace the wastewater treatment system in the Domaine-en-Haut sector began in late summer. The work will be spread over several months, with completion scheduled for winter 2024. A service building will be erected. It's important to remember that the existing system was outdated, and that the work will ensure compliance with Ministère de l'Environnement, de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques, de la Faune et des Parcs (MELCCFP) standards. For this project, the Town is receiving financial assistance from the Ministère des Affaires municipales et de l'Habitation (MAMH).
- The contract for the addition of ultraviolet disinfection units to the filtration plant has been awarded. The ultraviolet disinfection system will be integrated into the water treatment chain, immediately after the water filtration stage. This will ensure that disinfection criteria are met in the event of a prolonged deterioration in the quality of the raw water drawn from Vaudreuil Bay. The mobilization of the contractor is scheduled for the very near future, and the work will be spread over several months, barring any supply delays.
- Underground infrastructure work for the arrival of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges hospital began in August and will continue over the coming months. The work involves extending the water supply and sanitary sewer networks to the hospital site. Work began on a section of boulevard de la Gare, south of rue Édouard-Lalonde, and then continued westwards along boulevard de la Cité-des-Jeunes. The pipes were installed by drilling under Autoroute 30, a work method that does not require any trenching or obstruction of highway traffic. on the highway. The contractor was also tasked with redesigning the Exit 2 ramp on Autoroute 30 eastbound to add a turning lane and mitigate the impact of hospital construction on traffic in the area.
- To improve traffic flow on boulevard de la Gare, near the Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux, and following the recommendations of the Vaudreuil Station TOD Area Travel Study, work was carried out to lengthen the left-turn lane on boulevard de la Gare at this location. This improvement is designed to ensure adequate storage length to accommodate the left-turn queue.
- A total of four electric vehicle charging stations (EVRC) were installed for on-street parking this year. They are located on rue Dutrisac, avenue de la Fabrique and avenue Saint-Charles (2). This project was funded in part by Hydro-Québec's Circuit électrique.
- The mandate to prepare plans and specifications for the construction of the new drinking water reservoir was awarded in September, and the design is progressing rapidly. Work is scheduled for 2024. The reservoir will eventually replace the water tower on the red (Dorion) aqueduct network, and will also provide drinking water and fire protection for the Vaudreuil-Soulanges hospital.
- Work to rehabilitate the road surface and extend the storm sewer on Legault Street is done.
- Fire Station No. 11 – De Lotbinière: Work is nearing completion. The building should be operational shortly. The new fire station, which will house firefighters on duty 24/7, becomes the second main fire station to cover the urban territory of Vaudreuil-Dorion, in addition to the Municipality of Pointe-des-Cascades.
- Municipal Hub: Les travaux de construction de la phase 1 du pôle municipal (bibliothèque, hôtel de ville et place publique) se poursuivent. Cet automne, ont été notamment effectués les travaux d’érection de la structure de bois et les travaux d’enveloppe extérieure. The project began in October 2022 and will take two years to complete. 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.
- 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.
- The mandate to prepare plans and specifications for the redevelopment of Bourget Park was awarded in October, and work is scheduled to start in 2024. The redevelopment includes a baseball field, water features and street furniture. These facilities should be available to the public in 2024.
Design and planning activities for the reconstruction of the Île-aux-Tourtes bridge have been underway since last spring. This major project requires preparatory work, including geotechnical drilling, various pile strength tests and deforestation. These should be completed by the end of the year.
In the coming weeks, construction work will intensify and become increasingly visible on the shores of the village of Senneville and those of the town of Vaudreuil-Dorion, as well as on the Lake of Two Mountains. The site will be busy day and night.
This work could have repercussions in the area, including increased truck traffic on the municipal road network, higher-than-normal noise levels and dust. In addition, night work will require lighting. Rest assured that all measures will be put in place to minimize the impact on the neighborhood, including :
- Portable and fixed noise barriers;
- Stations to measure noise and vibration levels;
- Acoustic enclosures around certain equipment;
- Lighting directed at work zones;
- Dust abatement on unpaved roads and during dust-generating work (sawing, etc.).
- Truck speed reduction to limit noise;
- Equipment and machinery fitted with high-performance silencers;
- Trucks fitted with low-noise, wide-band (white noise) back-up alarms.
In winter 2024, you will be invited to an information session at which the main current and future interventions, impacts, mitigation and environmental protection measures will be presented. Stay tuned by visiting the project web page. You can also subscribe to the project newsletter on the same page.

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.
