This is part of the project to optimize the main drinking water supply system in the greater Montréal area: construction and repair of a number of flow measurement chambers in the water system supply pipes.
  • Elm Avenue, between Westcroft and Allancroft: complete closure with local traffic only controlled by traffic control persons. Detours and alternatives routes proposed.
