At the beginning of August, certain roads in the municipality that are particularly damaged will be resurfaced.
The duration of this work will be approximately 10 to 12 days and will not necessitate the complete closure of any street. Signs indicating the sections that are closed to traffic will follow the work as it progresses.
During the work, your driveway will remain accessible at all times, except when the resurfacing work will take place directly in front of your residence. At that moment, and until the asphalt has hardened, you will not have access to your driveway. This should only last a few hours.
Signs installed on site will indicate when the newly resurfaced section of road will be open to traffic.
The streets affected by this work are:
|Streets||Date of work|
|Simard, between Gascogne and Dauphiné||August 2018|
|Notre-Dame, intersection of Green||August 2018|
|Lespérance, between Walnut and Pine||August 2018|
|D’Alsace, between Gascogne and Poitou||August 2018|
|Île-de-France Place||August 2018|
Why these streets rather than others?
For budgetary reasons, the choice of which roads to repave is taken following a thorough analysis of the territory on the basis of identified priorities and locations that are deemed the most critical.
Why only resurfacing?
Resurfacing is, in fact, a temporary solution while awaiting the complete and in-depth reconstruction of these roads. A project of this magnitude would cost much more and the work would take several weeks. In light of the current budget, the work carried out this year was much more realistic and achievable in the short term. Resurfacing improves ride comfort and extends the life of the pavement.
