The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) is preparing to deconstruct the Champlain Bridge and invites the public to discover the project, consult its experts, and give suggestions during four information days that will be held starting May 8. JCCBI experts will attend these events to talk to the public about the different components of the Champlain Bridge deconstruction project. An online consultation will run from May 8 to June 30 inclusively at champlaindeconstruction.ca.
Below is the detailed schedule of the four information days, which are free and do not require registrations.
Wednesday, May 8 and Thursday, May 9, 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at the Centre for Sustainable Development, 50 Sainte-Catherine Street West, Montreal
Three discussion workshops with our experts will be held May 8 and May 9 on the following topics:
Saturday, May 11, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the Centre communautaire Elgar, 260 Elgar Street, Verdun
Monday, May 13, 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., at the Centre culturel Alphonse-Lepage, 7905 San Francisco Avenue, Brossard
Note that the Champlain Bridge has reached the end of its service life and will be deconstructed starting in 2020 according to a sustainable development approach. This major project will last approximately three years and includes different components that you can learn about in our technical data sheets on sustainable development, environmental measures, material reuse, research and development and Héritage Champlain, which is a project to redevelop the shoreline and Champlain Bridge Estacade for recreational and commemorative purposes.
The public is invited to meet JCCBI experts at these four information days and to share their comments and ideas on its online platform about the redevelopment of available land, the reuse of materials, the research and development program, as well as the targeted environmental analysis, which includes measures to minimize impacts on the community.
