Each year, the City of Saint-Lambert undertakes a number of infrastructure and street improvement projects.
This section of the website will keep you informed about work being done, as well as any resulting traffic disruptions, to help you plan your trips accordingly.
For your safety, we urge you to be vigilant as you approach roadwork sites and to follow the detour signs that will be posted.
The dates indicated are approximate, as many factors, including weather conditions, can have an impact on how long projects take to complete.
18-03-2019 - Smell and taste of chlorine in the water
The melting of the snow of the last days has increased the level of particles in the river. The dosage of chlorine had to be adjusted, but rest assured, the concentrations of chlorine used remain low and are safe for health.
Water is good for consumption, but the taste is affected. The situation should be resolved over the next few days.
Chlorine is a volatile element that evaporates fairly quickly. Thus, to improve the taste of water, you can fill a container and keep it on the counter or in the refrigerator before consuming it.
Notice to residents
Protect your water intake valve from freezing
A few cases of frozen water intake valves on the territory have been brought to our attention. It appears that the configuration of the underground infrastructure in certain areas makes some streets particularly sensitive to this phenomenon during the long cold snaps.
As a preventive measure, you can leave a small trickle of cold water running from one of your taps until further notice.
This simple remedy will prevent your water intake valve from freezing and will save you a lot of headaches.

In 2012, the City undertook a major project to rehabilitate the entire length of Riverside Drive, the longest artery in Saint-Lambert. Some streets that cross Riverside Drive are included in this project. Hickson, Edison, D’Anjou and Du Rhône avenues, as well as a section of Simard Boulevard, will also be rebuilt. For more information on that major project, visit the Riverside drive project description page.
Work will resume in the fall of 2017, with the reconstruction of Riverside Drive between Anjou and the limit of Brossard, and of Rhône Avenue. For more information, visit the Rehabilitation of Riverside Drive (phase 5) page.
Rehabilitation of Rothesay Avenue
This summer, the City of Saint-Lambert will be reconstructing Rothesay Avenue, as well as the portion of Arran Street between Rothesay and Rivermere avenues.
The work will consist of replacing the sewers and water mains, repaving, and rebuilding the sidewalks. For more information, visit the Rehabilitation of Rothesay Avenue.
Rehabilitation of Dulwich Avenue
This spring, the City of Saint-Lambert will undertake the rehabilitation of Dulwich Avenue, between Desaulniers Boulevard and Green Street. For more information, visit the Rehabilitation of Dulwich Avenue page.
Starting at the end of summer, certain roads in the municipality that are particularly damaged will be resurfaced. For more information, visit the Road resurfacing page.
Sidewalk and curb repairs
Over the summer, crews will be out repairing damaged sections of sidewalks and curbs throughout the municipality. This is very short-term work that should not affect traffic. For more information, visit the Sidewalk and curb repairs page.
