The City of Montreal has announced that work will begin in July in the borough of Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension to redevelop three intersections close to the University of Montreal’s new campus.

The City of Montreal is conducting renovations as part of its MIL campus project, which costs more than $2 million. In September 2019, Université de Montréal opened its MIL campus in Outremont.

According to an announcement made June 22, renovations will take place at the following intersections:

  • Acadie and Jean-Talon
  • Acadie and Beaumont
  • Beaumont and Birnam

“We enthusiastically welcome this redevelopment work,” borough Mayor Giuliana Fumagalli said. “It will ensure more functional movement in the Beaumont sector near the new university campus.”

Re-development of the three sites will involve modifying traffic lights and street markings.

The City will re-program lights at the three intersections to give pedestrians more time to cross intersections.

Moreover, new street markings will give more space to pedestrians when crossing streets.

The City will also install a permanent traffic light at the intersection of Beaumont and Birnam, to replace the temporary light installed in 2019.
