Exterior work will be carried out according to the schedule authorized by municipal by-laws, from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on weekdays. Some work will have to be done over a few nights to finish connecting the water pipes to the station. We will provide you with advance notice of all information regarding the work via our electronic newsletter and on this web page.

Noise and vibrations

The work will be done in compliance with all municipal by-laws. However, you may hear some noise and feel vibrations around the worksite during drilling and excavation work.

Water shut-offs

Water shut-offs may occur in the area around the worksite during the work. In this situation, you will receive a printed notice 48 hours in advance to help you prepare.


Anti-dust sheets will be installed on all the worksite partitions to limit dust dispersal.
