Nature of the work:

*The current sequence and dates are subject to change without notice. 

Anticipated impacts and mitigation measures:

Just as for any construction site, the work will generate noise, vibrations, dust, heavy truck traffic and traffic disruptions. Mitigation measures will be implemented to minimize the impacts. The REM project office and NouvLR consortium’s goal is to prevent or minimize impact on surrounding residents as much as possible and ensure safety by implementing all appropriate measures.
