Rehabilitation of Saint-Charles Avenue

This summer, the City of Saint-Lambert will undertake the rehabilitation of Saint-Charles Avenue. The work is slated to take place from the end of July to the end of November.

The work will affect the section of Saint-Charles Avenue situated between the recreation centre parking lot and Saint-George Street, and will also include Henry and Lemoyne avenues. The City will take advantage of this opportunity to replace the sewer pipes and water mains that cross Lespérance Park, prior to the park’s complete renovation.

Inspections conducted last year by cameras in the sewer networks revealed their very poor condition (cracks, displaced joints, holes, leaks, etc.), resulting in the need to undertake this work in the short term. 

The dates indicated are approximate, as many factors, including weather conditions, can have an impact on how long the work takes to complete. 

Carte des travauxTraffic

To help you get around during the reconstruction work, a detour route will be set up. We recommend following the signs that will be installed soon, indicating the route to take. This detour will be in place for the duration of the work. Local traffic will be permitted and access to businesses and industrial facilities will also be possible throughout the project. 

Access to residences

While excavation work to replace water mains and rebuild the sidewalks is taking place in front of your house, it will be temporarily impossible for you to access your home by car. As a general rule, this work should take a few working days. The rest of the time, local traffic access will be provided for residents affected by the roadwork. To get prepared for this roadwork, consult the Practical information on roadworks page.

Special land development

As part of the project, the roadway geometry will be restructured with a view to improving the layout of Saint-Charles Avenue to include a green strip and new lighting the length of the street, thus enhancing the quality of the environment.

Pedestrian safety

During the work, the City of Saint-Lambert will set up an enhanced surveillance system around the perimeter of the worksite. However, we must urge parents to inform their children of the potential danger associated with such major work and to watch out for the safety of the children in their neighbourhood.

Questions on the worksite?

We are well aware of the inconveniences caused by such large-scale work. We welcome any comments you might have and, above all, we hope to keep you fully informed.

Vasco Morgado will be on the worksite at all times, and he will do everything he can to help you deal with the small problems caused by the work. Mr. Morgado is a technician in the Engineering Department and will be the person to speak to for the duration of the project. You can reach him at 514 290-1424.

Stay informed!

The information in this page will be continually updated. We invite you to check it regularly for reports on the progress of work.

2017-11-02 - Reopening of Saint-Charles Avenue 
Starting Friday, November 3, the contractor will reopen a portion of Saint-Charles Avenue. Trucks and vehicles belonging to employees and neighbourhood residents will have local access via Saint-George Street. All other vehicles must continue to use the detour route until the work is completed.

In the next few weeks, the contractor will proceed with the reconstruction of sidewalks, the preparation of planting holes and work on the remaining elements, such as lighting. The work is expected to be completed by early December. 

Parking on Saint-Charles and Henry
Starting Monday, November 6, parking on Saint-Charles Avenue and Henry Avenue:

  • will be permitted only between 5 p.m. and 7 a.m. on weekdays. Starting at 7 a.m., any vehicles remaining on the street will be towed to ensure the optimal progress of the work.
  • will be permitted at all times on weekends.

Lemoyne Avenue
At the same time, work on Lemoyne Avenue will begin on Monday, November 6, at the intersection of Lemoyne and Oak, which will be completely closed until Wednesday, November 8.

Oak Avenue, between Lemoyne Avenue and Saint-Georges Street will remain two-way to allow residents to have access to their residence. Parking will continue to be prohibited on both sides of Oak Avenue to keep traffic moving safely.

2017-10-25 - Closing of Saint-Charles Avenue
The contractor will begin to work at the intersection of Saint-Charles Avenue and Saint-Georges Street. Already, commercial transportation is struggling to use Saint-Charles Avenue, causing potentially dangerous traffic jams on the periphery of the railway.

For a security issue, we will have to temporarily direct all traffic on Oak Avenue between Saint-Georges and Lemoyne, including commercial trucks. This change will be effective Monday, October 30, for a period of about two weeks, the time to finish the work at the intersection. We thank you for your understanding.

2017-10-13 - Work on Saturday, October 14
In order to be able to respect the originally scheduled completion date, the contractor will have to work on Saint-Charles Avenue on Saturday, October 14, from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

We are conscious of the inconveniences caused by such large-scale work, and we will make every effort to minimize its impact and duration. Thank you for your understanding. 

2017-10-12 – Beginning of the last phase 
The contractor has reached the last phase of Saint-Charles Avenue, which includes the rehabilitation of Lemoyne Avenue. This operation requires us to open Oak Avenue to two-way traffic between Lemoyne Avenue and Saint-Charles Street. This measure will be in effect starting Tuesday, October 17, and will last for all the work on Lemoyne Avenue (estimated duration of three weeks). We are conscious of the inconveniences, and we will make every effort to minimize its impact and duration. Thank you for your understanding.

2017-09-26 - Update on the progress of the work
The project is progressing as planned in spite of the change in road geometry. More than 250 metres of sewer pipes and water mains have already been laid on Saint-Charles Avenue, and work to replace the rest will continue over the coming weeks. At the beginning of October, electrical and concrete work should begin between Mercier Street and Henry Avenue. We will continue to give you regular progress reports.

If you have any questions on the worksite, we invite you to contact Vasco Morgado at 514 290-1424. 

2017-09-22 - Work between between Mercier Street and Lemoyne Avenue
The contractor has reached the section of Saint-Charles Street between Mercier Street and Lemoyne Avenue. The City of Saint-Lambert would therefore like to advise area residents that work will be carried out in front of their homes on Saturday, September 23, between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.

If you have any questions on the worksite, we invite you to contact Vasco Morgado at 514 290-1424.

2017-09-12 - Change to on-street parking
Following a re-evaluation of the project, the municipal council has taken the decision to modify the Saint-Charles Avenue plan to respond to the
many requests by area residents. Accordingly, on-street parking will be located on the side of the industrial facilities rather than the residences, which may in effect increase the number of parking places available. This modification will not result in any delay or additional costs to the project. 

Saint-Charles Avenue plan

This measure will be in effect starting Tuesday, September 12, and will last for an estimated duration of two weeks. We will keep you updated as the work progresses.

However, some inconveniences, such as noise and dust, are expected. The contractor will do everything possible to minimize them. We thank park users in advance for their understanding.
