Rehabilitation of Industriel Blvd.: Châteauguay Is Waiting for a Grant in Order to Award the Contract

Tuesday, 12 February, 2019

Châteauguay, February 12, 2019 – At the Municipal Council meeting of January 21, the elected officials finally awarded the contract for the revitalization and modernization of Industriel Boulevard, between Highway 30 and Pascal Street. This boulevard, which is the primary entry point into the City from Highway 30 West and the access road for businesses to the industrial park, has been in a deplorable state for several years.  

However, the Municipal Council was required to add a major condition for the fulfillment of the contract, e.g., that the government must comply with the agreement entered into with the Ville de Châteauguay’s Service du génie, namely, that it will be able to benefit from a minimum grant of $5M to complete this major project. 

This condition had to be added because, since the election of the new government, the Ville de Châteauguay has not been able to obtain a response regarding the promised grant. Mayor Pierre-Paul Routhier states that “without a grant guarantee, it will be impossible to proceed with the reconstruction work on this boulevard, which would cause not only a major prejudice to the manufacturers in the Industrial Park, but also to the entire City.”

The bid submitted by Eurovia Québec—the lowest responsive bidder—is still valid for a 60-day period. The Mayor trusts that the representations made to the MNA for the Châteauguay riding and Chair of the Committee on Citizen Relations, MarieChantal Chassé, and the MNA of La Prairie, the Minister Responsible for Government Administration, the Treasury Board president and the Minister Responsible for the Montérégie Region, Christian Dubé, will be successful and ensure that the grant is confirmed in the coming weeks.

The proposed new boulevard will have four lanes to ensure better traffic flow, sustainable development, compacted rolled concrete pavement, accessibility to the boulevard on foot and by bicycle by means of a multi-purpose trail, a stormwater drainage system, landscaping and a revamped city entrance.

To learn about the next steps in this project, residents are invited to regularly refer to the City’s website, Facebook page and Twitter feed.
