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.
Railway works sector boulevard de la Cité-des-Jeunes
Significant work will be done until October 2019. They include the widening of the road approaches and the railway crossing - north side (June and July), the replacement of the railway bridge on the Quinchien River (August), and the widening of the crossing - south side, and completion of work (September and October).
The work will take place mainly from Monday to Friday, from 7 am to 6 pm.
Although everything is put in place to minimize the impact of this work on the quality of life of residents, some nuisances are apprehended, such as: noise from construction and machinery, dust, back-up alarms, communication systems, lighting, etc.
Des Chenaux Overpass
The Ministère des Transports du Québec has recently posted a page dedicated to the reconstruction of the Chenaux overpass, which was closed in September 2018 after an inspection found significant defects affecting its bearing capacity. This page contains, among other things, the proposed options, the completion steps, the schedule and the budget. It will be updated when more information becomes available.
