Riverside Drive Closing from Lauzon to Riverdale

Construction of the Riverside Drive Vista Improvement Project Phase 1 Stage 2 will result in the closure of Riverside Drive from Lauzon Road East to Riverdale Avenue starting Monday, June 18, 2018. The closure will remain in place until December 2018.  Local traffic will be permitted throughout the work but property owners are cautioned that delays are possible.

Construction crews will be rebuilding the roadway with the intent of reducing driver speed and volume, while increasing safety along the scenic drive though the installation of curbs and gutters, on-road bike lanes and sidewalks, and roadway realignment. There will also be improved infrastructure added through new storm and sanitary sewers along with a new watermain.

This is the next step in a multi-phase project, which will result in an improved transportation corridor that will make it safer for all users and make the drive look more scenic.

Relocations of hydro, Bell, Cogeco and Union Gas were undertaken in advance of the sewer, watermain and road works.

Detour signage will be in place, with Wyandotte street being the best east-west option close to Riverside.
