REM work - closure of Highway 40 West service road for three weekends
Nature of the work
The Highway 40 West service road will be closed near Saint-Jean Boulevard for three consecutive weekends because of gantry installation work.
A gantry, a portion of the elevated structure supported by two pillars, will be installed to help support loads. The gantry will be installed on either side of the Highway 40 West service road in anticipation of further construction of the elevated structure.
A detour will be possible via Tecumseh and Selkirk Avenues and Brunswick Boulevard.
Another detour route will be possible via Saint-Jean Boulevard, Labrosse Avenue, Selkirk Avenue and Brunswick Boulevard.
An optional route will also be accessible via Highway 40 westbound.
The work schedule is as follows*
July 31 at 10 p.m. to August 3 at 5 am
August 7 at 10 p.m. to August 8 at noon
August 21 at 10 p.m. to August 24 at 5 a.m.
*The current sequence and dates are subject to change without notice.

Anticipated impacts and mitigation measures
As with any construction site, the work will generate impacts such as noise, vibration, dust, heavy truck traffic and traffic disruptions. Mitigation measures will be implemented to minimize these impacts. The REM project office and the NouvLR consortium will endeavour to prevent or minimize the impact on surrounding residents as much as possible and ensure safety by implementing all appropriate measures.
