Residents and workers informations
Redevelopment of Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest between Rue De Bleury and Rue Mansfield
Beginning of April until the fall of 2020.
End of phase 1 work : fall 2021.
PHASE 1 : With just a single traffic lane, bordered by broader sidewalks and re-greened with the addition of numerous trees, Montréal’s iconic commercial strip will place pedestrians at the heart of the public space. This major thoroughfare will connect the different public places around it, including the Place des Festivals, the square in front of St. James United Church, Square Phillips, and Avenue McGill College. Phase 1 of the project will also include work on Square Philips, Place du Frère-André and the adjacent streets.
As well, existing green spaces will be consolidated to increase plant cover and create cool spaces for Montrealers during the heat of summer. This major street, which can be made pedestrian-only depending on the time of year and events, will become one of Montréal's star sites!

Wider sidewalks between Saint-Alexandre and De Bleury streets
Starting this summer, resurfacing work between Saint-Alexandre and De Bleury streets gave pedestrians access to new wider sidewalks finished in concrete pavers with granite curbs. To avoid damaging the curbs during snow removal operations, the roadway will be temporarily flush with the sidewalks this winter. Snow-removal bollards marking the border between curb and roadway have been installed every six metres to keep pedestrians safe.
