To December 2019: Major work on Pie-IX Boulevard

Until December 2019, we will carry major work on Pie-IX Boulevard between D’Amos Street and Pierre-De Coubertin Avenue. Traffic is maintained at all times in both directions. Two lanes are reconfigured into southbound lanes and one lane remain open for northbound traffic.

The Pie-IX Boulevard bus rapid transit service (BRT) is a high-performance public transportation project that is integrated into the reconstruction and upgrade of Pie-IX Boulevard. It will offer a rapid, reliable, comfortable, safe and universally accessible bus service between eastern Laval and Montréal.

  • Service in operation: Fall 2022

The Pie-IX BRT project has three parts

  • Implementation of a public transportation system
  • Complete refurbishment of municipal infrastructure
  • Improvement of public property
Texte importantThe Pie-IX BRT will have 17 stations (15 in Montréal and two in Laval), spread out over 11 km of Pie-IX Boulevard between Saint-Martin Boulevard in Laval and Pierre-De Coubertin Avenue in Montréal. Expected to be up and running in 2022, it will serve more than 70,000 customers a day.

The Pie-IX BRT will offer a frequency comparable to that of the métro during peak periods.

Reconstruction of Pie-IX Boulevard

The City of Montréal will use the BRT project to upgrade its water and sewer networks, which are currently at the end of their useful lives. The City will reconstruct the foundation, road, sidewalks and grass medians of Pie-IX Boulevard between Henri-Bourassa Boulevard and Pierre-De Coubertin Avenue.

The project will improve residents’ surroundings by planting several hundred trees, widening sidewalks, refurbishing the road, medians and lighting, and installing new traffic lights. The improvements will create a multifunctional environment where public transportation will be an important part of residents’ travel habits.
