A total of $30 million will be allocated to roads. This will include the redesign of boulevard Maloney Est (phase II – roundabout – boulevard de l'Aéroport), the intersection of boulevard Saint-Joseph and rue Jean-Proulx (roundabout and northern access), boulevard Wilfrid-Lavigne (from rue John Egan to rue Principale) and boulevard Saint-Joseph (from rue Valin to rue Jean-Proulx nord).
In addition, Gatineau will be repaving sections of des Oliviers, du Vallon, Donaldson and des Laurentides, as well as boulevards Labrosse and Maloney Ouest. This work, estimated at $3 million, will be financed out of the new infrastructure fund.
This year, Gatineau will allocate $17 million to its water supply and sewer systems. It will use the roads, water supply and sewer system repair program for the work on Bélanger, Church and James in the Buckingham sector, des Servantes, Saint-Jean-Baptiste and Victor-Lacelle in the Masson-Angers sector, d'Auvergne and Reims in the Gatineau sector, and Papineau and Vaudreuil in the Hull sector.
Gatineau will spend $20 million on its buildings and plants. These include renovations and upgrades to Maison du citoyen, the workshops in the Hull sector, Édifice Pierre-Papin, place des Pionniers, the water treatment and wastewater treatment plant in the Gatineau sector, and several community centres and arenas in different sectors.
A total of $17 million will be invested in more than 45 municipal parks, pathways and other green areas. Aside from the approximately $12 million going to municipal parks, this amount also includes investments in recreational pathways ($3.5 million), urban renovations along different downtown streets ($1.6 million) and the development and maintenance of community and collective gardens ($100,000).
A total of $4 million will be allocated to other projects. The launch ramps in the Masson-Angers sector and parc Sanscartier will be repaired, culverts will be rebuilt, and some of the slopes will be stabilized.
This level of activity throughout Gatineau will naturally result in traffic slowdowns. Gatineau asks that residents be prudent and patient, and will be counting on their usual cooperation.
