Once the original Champlain Bridge is deconstructed, 7 acres of land will be freed up and used to create value for residents.
This project will involve redeveloping:
the shoreline on the Montreal side;
the Champlain Bridge Ice Control Structure;
the site of the seaway dike;
the shoreline on the Brossard side.
To ensure these local redevelopment projects meet people’s expectations, JCCBI organized a co-design workshop in December 2019 to get the community involved in generating ideas to redevelop the shoreline and the ice control structure.
The redevelopment project will leave a legacy for the community, provide enhanced access to the St. Lawrence River, and preserve portions of the bridge to commemorate its part in Montreal history.
