De Navarre Street rehabilitation

This year, the Ville de Saint-Lambert will move ahead with the reconstruction of the surface of De Navarre Street (between Plamondon Boulevard and Place du Mans) and of Place du Mans.

This work will involve replacing some catch basins and fire hydrants, replacing the curb and sidewalk, pulverizing the pavement, reconstructing the foundation of the pavement and laying two new paving courses.

Timetable

Work will begin gradually during the week of May 31 and ramp up the following week, with completion slated for around mid-August. The contractor will return in September to lay sod and plant trees. Planting later in the season avoids much of the intense midsummer heat and helps maximize the growth of plants.

The schedule may change at any time without notice, according to the progress of the work.

Proposed redevelopment

The future layout of the streets will be as follows:

De Navarre Avenue

  • Overall street width: 8.5 m
  • Width of new sidewalk on odd side: 1.8 m
  • Curb on even side

Place du Mans

  • Width unchanged
  • Addition of parking spaces
  • Addition of a green space
  • Planting of trees

Traffic

Given the large number of residents in this area, the plan is to not completely close Navarre Avenue and Place du Mans during the day. You will have vehicular access to your residence at all times, with the exception of the period during which the sidewalk or curb is being rebuilt, which may last between five and ten working days.

Vehicular access to your residence may also occasionally be limited for a period of less than three working days.

Traffic may also occasionally be temporarily interrupted for certain operations on the site, which should last a maximum of 15 minutes, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Flaggers will be present at all times during the work. We ask that you heed their directions when driving through the worksite, and we thank you for your patience.

One-way traffic on D'Orléans Street

D'Orléans Street will be converted to a two-way street for the duration of the work. We ask residents of De Navarre Avenue past Place du Mans and those of Place du Mans to use D'Orléans Street to access their residences or Plamondon Boulevard. This will help ease traffic in the work zone on De Navarre Avenue between D'Orléans Street and Place du Mans.

As D'Orléans will no longer be a one-way street, in order to facilitate the flow of traffic, parking on D'Orléans Street will not be permitted.

Night work

Certain operations will require De Navarre Avenue and Place du Mans to be completely closed for several hours, particularly during the excavation of the full width of the street and the application of the paving courses.

Due to the current configuration of the neighbourhood—with only one exit onto Plamondon Boulevard—the large number of residents in the area, and in order to minimize the impact on the movement of residents, the complete closures of De Navarre Avenue will take place at night between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.

The City and the contractor will nevertheless ensure that these exceptional nighttime closures are kept to a minimum by working in stages.

A minimum of 48 hours’ notice will be provided prior to any night work.  

Neighbourhood residents

The reconstruction of a street is a complex operation involving many companies, and it creates a great deal of disruption to people’s routines. The page Practical information on roadworks will offer you practical tips to ensure your daily routine continues as smoothly as possible.

Latest news

2021-06-21 - Progress of work
Work is progressing well on the rehabilitation of De Navarre Avenue. The work to replace underground infrastructure (fire hydrants and catch basins in poor condition) is now complete.

During the week of June 21, the contractor will begin constructing the sidewalks and curbs. As of that point, some residents will not be able to access their parking spaces by vehicle for a period of approximately 7 days, which may vary depending on the progress of the work and the weather conditions.

Finally, in order to provide on-street parking in the area for affected residents, one-way traffic has been re-established on Orleans Avenue, street cleaning has been postponed, and the Thursday morning parking ban has been temporarily lifted.

2021-06-16 – Water pressure drop on De Navarre Avenue
Please take note that due to work on the water system, the Ville de Saint-Lambert has had to reduce the water pressure on De Navarre Avenue east of Plamondon Boulevard, De Navarre Crescent, D’Orleans Street and Place Du Mans between 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 16, 2021.

It is possible that this operation may cause service interruptions. If this is the case, we recommended turning on the bathtub tap first. If the water is coloured or has a strong chlorine smell, simply let the cold water run in the bathtub until it is clear and colourless (± 20 minutes), especially before doing laundry. Unless the City has issued a boil water advisory, this is a common occurrence that is usually caused by the presence of rust or air bubbles. It does not present a health hazard. If the water is still coloured after it has been running for more than 30 minutes, please inform the City.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
