MONTREAL, Quebec, September 27, 2012 -
Canada Lands Company would like to notify the community of the temporary closure of a multipurpose path on the north shore of the Lachine Canal
and detour to the south shore of the Canal, as of October 9, 2012, until spring 2013.
Construction work is required to facilitate development on the Parks Canada section of the multipurpose path located across the
Les Bassins du Nouveau Havre CLC project.
The work will be carried out on the section of the Lachine Canal multipurpose path located between Richmond Street to the west and Du Séminaire Street to the east.
To ensure the safety of path users during construction work, the multipurpose path between Des Seigneurs Street and the Wellington Bridge will be temporarily closed and a detour will be provided. Signage will direct path users to the south side of the canal, thereby avoiding the construction area.
During the construction phase:
- Some construction noise and dust will be generated by heavy trucks
- Work will be scheduled between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.
- CLC will do its best to reduce disruptions or inconveniences
- CLC will strive to complete the work in a timely manner
