Borough mayor Luc Rabouin announced the approval of the pedestrianization projects on the Plateau:
Mont-Royal Ave. will be completely pedestrianized between St-Laurent Blvd. and Fullum St. from June 20 to Sept. 15, identical to last year’s car-free efforts.
St-Laurent Blvd. will be partially pedestrianized with an expansion of sidewalks between Sherbrooke St. and Mont-Royal Ave. from July 2 to Sept. 6. A traffic lane for cars will remain at its centre.
Duluth Ave. will be pedestrianized between St-Laurent Blvd. and St-Denis St. from July 2 to Aug. 22 on weekends.
“These projects were all developed by the merchants’ associations, in collaboration with the district. A majority of merchants have shown support for the project,” Rabouin wrote on Facebook.
“I wish to remind you all of the crucial role we can play in the survival of businesses and the vitality of our commercial streets by choosing to buy local.”
