Consctruction work planned for 2022

Bike paths and pedestrian areas

  • In the fall of 2021, a portion of the bike lane's surface along Montée Cadieux was rehabilitated, between Jean-Lesage and Larivée streets. The work, which was suspended due to cold weather, was recently resumed to complete the project, from Larivée Street to Saint-Charles Avenue.

  • Work to rehabilitate the surface of Besner Drive between Place du Chevalier and Louise-Josephte Street is scheduled for the summer of 2022.

  • The City will extend the bike lane between 33 and 37 Boulevard de la Cité-des-Jeunes (approximately from the Holiday Inn to Carlos & Pepe's) and create a link to Avenue de la Canardière. Work is planned to be completed in June and July 2022.

  • An off-street bicycle lane will be built along Rue des Muguets, connecting the pedestrian tunnel to Paul-Gérin-Lajoie Road. The work is expected to be completed during the summer school break, between late June and mid-August 2022.

  • A multi-use path on the west side of Boulevard de la Gare will be built between Maurice-Richard and Édouard-Lalonde streets. Work is expected to begin in the summer of
    summer of 2022.

  • Work will take place in the fall to build a pedestrian pathway in Vaudreuil Bay, between Paul-Gérin-Lajoie Park and Maison-Valois Park. This future gravel path will allow users to walk close to nature.

Infrastructures

  • The first phase of the rehabilitation of a culvert located on Bellerive Street was completed last February. This phase consisted of interventions on the structure of the culvert. The contractor mobilized again in the spring, following the thaw period, to complete the project. This second phase includes, among other things, paving work in the work area.
  • The City will be rehabilitating the water main along Boileau Street between Lartigue Street and Boulevard de la Cité-des-Jeunes. Work is scheduled for the summer of 2022.
  • Work on the rehabilitation of the Wildwood Pumping Station is scheduled to begin in June, but may be delayed depending on the delivery of materials required for the project. The work will take place in the vicinity of the Chenaux Park, located on the road of the same name, north of Highway 40.
  • The rehabilitation of the Dutrisac pumping station will also take place during the summer of 2022. The Engineering Division and the engineering consultant are currently working on finalizing the concept and preparing the plans and specifications for the call for tenders. Construction is targeted for the fall of 2022, but may be delayed depending on the timing of ordering the required materials.
  • The Ministère des Affaires municipales et de l'Habitation (MAMH) is finalizing the agreements for the financial assistance granted for the construction of a drinking water supply line and for the replacement of the wastewater treatment system in the Domaine-en-Haut sector. Tenders can be issued once the grants have been obtained. It is still hoped that the work will begin in the summer of 2022.

Paving

  • Work is underway to install a left turn lane on Boulevard de la Gare towards Rue d'Orléans and to rehabilitate the pavement of a portion of Boulevard de la Gare eastbound (towards Boulevard de la Cité-des-Jeunes), between Rue d'Orléans and Boulevard de la Cité-des-Jeunes. Paving and levelling of the roadway will be done at night to limit the impact on traffic on Boulevard de la Gare.
  • Work to extend the storm sewer pipe and construct storm sewer inlets to the limit of the municipal right-of-way is planned on Legault Street. This will be followed by rehabilitation of the road surface. Work is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2022, but may be delayed until 2023.
  • During the summer, road surface rehabilitation work will take place on a portion of Rang Saint-Antoine, south of Montée de la Côte-Double (approximately 900 metres) and on Chemin Daoust between Harwood Road and Metcalfe Street. The City is receiving a $951,429 grant from the MTQ's Local Roads Assistance Program (Acceleration component).
  • As part of the revitalization of the Harwood - De Lotbinière sector, work is planned to redevelop a portion of Route de Lotbinière between Harwood Boulevard and Saint-Jean-Baptiste Avenue. A completely new geometry will be favoured and the public space will be greatly improved. The project consists of redesigning the road to integrate sidewalks, a one-way bicycle lane, vegetated ditches and tree planting on both sides of the road. Underground infrastructure work is also included in the project. The process for the adoption of a borrowing by-law and for obtaining the necessary MTQ authorizations to carry out the project was initiated in the winter of 2022. The Engineering Division and the engineering consultant are working to finalize the plans and specifications for the call for tenders. The start of the work is desired in the summer of 2022.
  • Work to rehabilitate the road surface of a portion of Montée Cadieux between Harwood Road and the railroad tracks near Jean-Lesage Street is expected to take place in late summer and fall. For this project, the City is receiving financial assistance of $1,310,581
    from the MTQ through the Local Roads Assistance Program (support component).

Other work

  • Work to rehabilitate the wharf at Esther-Blondin Park and dredge the boat launch is planned for 2022. Due to the presence of fish habitats in the work area, the work can only take place between August 1 and March 1, as required by the ministerial environmental authorities. The work is therefore scheduled to begin after August 1, 2022, subject to government approvals.
  • In the fall, the City will replace the variable message sign in the Dorion sector. The new display will be larger and of equal quality and resolution to the one in the Vaudreuil sector.
  • A new playground module for children aged 0 to 5 is about to be installed in the Manor Park. A tree planting is also planned to create shade for the comfort of users.

Buildings

The demolition of the existing #11 fire station, located on Lotbinière Road, took place in mid-August 2021. The construction of the new building will take approximately 20 months. This new fire station will become the second main fire station to cover the urban territory of Vaudreuil-Dorion. The new building will meet the latest design standards and will house firefighters on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The City will receive $4.5 million in financial assistance for this project.

Parks and green spaces master plan

The Parks and Green Spaces Master Plan, which was adopted in the spring of 2019 and covers the period 2018-2025, is an essential tool for managers and elected officials to adequately plan investments in existing and future parks. It serves to provide an overview of the various parks on the territory, including existing sports and recreational facilities, and makes it possible to monitor trend and use patterns.

How far along is the City in implementing this master plan at this point?

  • Development of parc Pierre-Mercure: Started in the fall of 2020, the development of Pierre Mercure Park is now complete. The park’s design was created in a way that ensures it suits all possible users, from seniors to young children. Numerous play structures for children aged 0 to 12 have been introduced, as well as benches, rocking benches and picnic tables. The installation of awnings and open play areas are also intended to meet the needs of the park’s various clienteles. The design also ensures that individuals with reduced mobility have easy access to the park’s different areas and most of its equipment (adapted picnic tables, adapted play structures and sidewalks facilitating movement to the various play areas). In total, more than 80 trees are expected to be planted within the park to help make it a major green space within the sector. Pierre-Mercure Park indeed provides young and old with access to a public space of the highest quality
  • Redevelopment of parc Lorne-Worsley: The redevelopment of Lorne-Worsley Park is expected to
    be carried out in two phases. The first phase, which began in late summer 2021, will continue into the fall. This stage of the project includes refurbishing of the parking lot, the installation of play structures as well as urban furniture and equipment (benches, picnic tables, bicycle racks, play structures and decorative lighting), the integration of new bleachers for the soccer field and the addition of pathways that provide access to the different activity areas. The project also included improvements to the dog park, mainly in terms of resurfacing. An exercise structure is also expected to be added to the dog park in the spring of 2022. A total of over 85 trees were planted during the first phase of the redevelopment project along with numerous shrubs and perennials, in an effort to create an abundance of vegetation
    in the area.

    The second phase of the project will involve the addition of a community garden. Dates for this second phase have yet to be determined.
  • Redevelopment of parc de Quinchien: Redevelopment work at parc Quinchien is expected to be completed in 2021. The project will include additional landscaping to correct a drainage problem, the creation of pathways providing access to all the different activity zones, the integration of a rest area with furniture near the soccer field and the installation of shelters to cover the players’ benches.
  • Planning and redevelopment of parc Mallette and parc Pinault: Planning and redevelopment work at both these parks is expected to take place in 2021. The project will include, without being limited to, the addition of urban furniture (swings, bicycle racks, a fountain), land relief, pathways allowing access to all the different activity zones, new play structures, a rest area, and the planting of trees, shrubs and perennials. Work is also planned to be carried out in parc Mallette to improve drainage. As for parc Pinault, plans include the creation of a food-producing garden and the addition of equipment for wildlife observation (e.g. shelters and nesting boxes).
