The redevelopment of rue Dubois includes, among other things, the asphalting and widening of the roadway, addition of a traffic light, general improvement of lighting, planting of plants, new configuration of intersections, provision of an additional safe turning lane towards 25th Avenue and an improvement in active transportation thanks to the addition of multipurpose paths 3 meters wide, on either side of the artery.
“In harmony with the findings from the public consultations carried out in 2021 and 2022 for the Saint-Eustache Urban Mobility Plan, this redevelopment responds to the challenges of active mobility, both for cyclists and pedestrians, and the difficulty of crossing the physical barrier of Highway 640 in a safe way. Indeed, in the long term, the project will make it possible to create a safe cycling link to reach the south of 25th Avenue. “, said the mayor of Saint-Eustache, Mr. Pierre Charron.
“Rue Dubois is home to large businesses to which two residential complexes are attached, namely the Jardins district and the Urban Gardens. As an important transit route for motorists, it becomes even more essential to make traffic flowing safe for current and future residents of nearby neighborhoods. », underlined Mr. Yves Roy, municipal councillor.
Impact on traffic and work schedule
During this period, traffic on the section in question will alternate with the help of flaggers between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday to Saturday. This should have a significant impact on road traffic throughout the area. It is therefore strongly recommended that motorists take this into account when traveling. At all times, emergency vehicles may circulate in the work area. The work will be carried out between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday to Saturday. If the weather conditions required it, there could be work outside these hours.
Moreover, some work, such as paving, could be carried out at night to minimize the impact on traffic, which would require the complete closure of the work area. Signage will be installed beforehand and flaggers will be on site to direct road users.
