Infrastructure work – Pointe-Claire Village

The City of Pointe-Claire is planning major work on municipal infrastructure starting in 2023 on Du Bord-du-Lac ― Lakeshore Road in Pointe-Claire Village, between Victoria and Du Golf Avenues, in order to upgrade the sewer, waterworks and storm drainage system pipes, which reached the end of their useful life, and to rebuild the road. This work will be spread over a minimum of two years.

In addition to upgrading the municipal infrastructure, which dates back to 1960, we also want to allow the entire community to share its opinion on the future development of Pointe-Claire Village.

With the vision of promoting an ever more inclusive living environment, the City will propose a first concept of a two-way street with maximized parking, and a second concept of a complete one-way street with more spaces for vegetation and pedestrians.

The two proposed developments will be presented in detail on June 14 and you will have until June 28 to choose online for your favorite concept.
