The info below is provided to the Town by the Réseau express métropolitain (REM). The work consists of identifying utilities through hydro-excavation, drainage pipe scrubbing and inspection, as well as surveying. This important step will provide critical data for designing the REM’s structures and stations.

When

Weekends of June 23-24-25 juin, 30 and July 1st, 2, 3, 7 and 8

Hydro-excavation

Hydro-excavation is the process of digging withpressurized water and vacuuming the soil or debris as digging progresses. This technique is safe, limits the impact on the immediate environment, generates no dust and reduces the risk of damaging underground infrastructures.

Where

In the railway right-of-way, primarily in the vicinity of the Canora and Mont-Royal stations.

Impact

The work may generate noise. In order to minimize this, acoustic screens will be installed around the trucks.

Pipe scrubbing and inspection

This campaign to clean buried utility drainage pipes using a tank truck and vacuum truck is followed by inspection to verify theircondition.

Where

On Canora and Dunkirk Roads, between Mont-Royal station and Jean-Talon Street West.

Impact

  • To ensure the team's safety, a portion of the right-hand lane on Canora Road, eastbound, and a portion of the left lane on Dunkirk Road, westbound, will be closed at alternating times during the day.
  • This work may generate noise. In order to minimize this, acoustic screens will be installed around the trucks.
