Since December 18, the multipurpose path and sidewalk switched to winter operations;

  • The path and sidewalk are open daily from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
  • In case of any temporary closures due to work, maintenance or adverse weather conditions, you will get an alert by email or on our dedicated Twitter account to let you know that the multipurpose path and/or sidewalk is closed.
  • You will then get a second message via these same tools when the path and/or sidewalk has reopened.
  • Mobile variable message signs will inform you of the condition of the path in real time (red, yellow or green).

All information about active mobility will be communicated only via:
