Infrastructure work: Rosemère committed to improving its community assets

This year again, the Town of Rosemère is undertaking work intended to improve its community assets in order to ensure a better quality of life for its citizens. 

Consequently, residents in the sector north of Autoroute 640 will be pleased to learn that the reconstruction of the Lauréanne Bridge will be getting underway in mid-July, since authorizations from the ministry have been received. Once this work has been completed, towards the end of October, residents will once again have a second access to their neighbourhood, which is nestled between the autoroute and Dog River. Not only will they then benefit from a brand new infrastructure, but their travels will be made safer by the addition of a multipurpose lane for the exclusive use of pedestrians and cyclists. This work represents a total investment of close to $600,000, including preparatory studies. 

Further south, work started earlier this week on a project being carried out on Montée Lesage between Roland-Durand Blvd. and the border with the Town of Blainville. This project, whose cost is approximately $500,000, involves mainly the complete rehabilitation of the pavement, sidewalks and curbs as well as the redevelopment of the site and pavement markings. Work should be completed by early August. 

Finally, the third infrastructure project will result from considerable efforts expended by the Town to obtain government grants in the order of $698,630 provided within the framework of the Québec-Municipalities Infrastructures Program. Representing a total investment of $1,175,000, this work calls for the rehabilitation of the waterworks system on Grande-Côe Raod between Labelle Boulevard and Florian Street as well as on Gilmour, Oliver and Tallwood streets. A short section between Labelle Boulevard and Hertel Street must be replaced in its entirety, since it must be enlarged. The rest of the network, meanwhile, can be restored thanks to the installation of a structural liner inside the pipe. This sleeving technique was selected because of its long-term effectiveness (a service life of 50 years) and the fact that it significantly reduces the need for excavation, which in turn considerably cuts down on the time needed to do the work. It also reduces its impact on road traffic and the distribution of drinking water.

Proud of improving its municipal infrastructures in an effort to enhance the quality of life of the entire community, mayor Madeleine Leduc wishes to thank citizens for their patience during the work period. "The inconveniences inherent in these work sites will be minimal compared to the major benefits we enjoy when our infrastructures are in better condition,” she concluded.
