Reconstruction project of the Île-aux-Tourtes bridge between Vaudreuil-Dorion and Senneville

July, 2023

Commissioned in 1965 and located on the Félix-Leclerc highway (Highway 40), the Île-aux-Tourtes bridge links the island of Montreal (village of Senneville) to the Montérégie region (city of Vaudreuil-Dorion). It is a key infrastructure and part of the strategic road network supporting trade. Nearly 87,000 vehicles use the structure every day, of which around 10% are trucks (2019 data).

The Île-aux-Tourtes bridge comprises two successive structures totalling 1,962 metres in length. The bridge has three lanes in each direction.

To ensure the longevity of this inter-river link, the Île-aux-Tourtes bridge will be rebuilt. The new bridge will include:

  • three traffic lanes in each direction
  • a multi-use path;
  • wide shoulders suitable for bus use only.

The reconstruction project has the following objectives

  • ensure the mobility of people and goods along the Highway 40 corridor between the Island of Montreal and the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region;
  • promote active and public transportation;
  • enhance the infrastructure and ensure its integration into the landscape;
  • preserve the integrity of the surrounding environment.

As mentioned in the latest infoconseil, the Ministry plans mitigation measures related to noise, dust, and lighting during construction. Efforts to limit the impacts caused by noise from the new structure are also mentioned. No closures of existing accesses are planned at this time.

Negotiations are underway with the Ministry regarding compensation measures, such as reforestation in the area at the end of the work.

Here is a link to the latest communication from the Ministry, including a short video of the project. We will, of course, keep you informed of the work schedule and the impacts on our territory as soon as the information is provided to us by the Ministry.

Presentation – Drainage study – Watershed no.4

May 24, 2016

By resolution no. 2016-05-1844, council adopted Senneville’s Master Drainage Plan dated March 30, 2016, which is an integral part of its revised Master Intervention Plan for the rehabilitation of the municipality’s aqueduct and sewer conduits dated July 10, 2015 and adopted by resolution 2016-01-1783.

By this policy, council now wishes to ensure the sound management of the drainage work on its territory in compliance with the Storm Water Management Guide prepared jointly by the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment and the Fight against Climate Change (MDDELCC) and by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Land Occupancy (MAMOT).

The measures set out below are aimed at the optimum management of storm water on its territory while ensuring the protection of the environment and persons. Thus, this policy seeks to:

  • Ensure the implementation of best practices on Senneville’s territory for the control of runoff and the quality of the water discharged to receiving environments;
  • Avoid the erosion of watercourses for the protection of water resources that may be affected by runoff; and
  • Avoid impacting neighbors, downstream sectors, or neighboring municipalities through poor upstream management.
