End of temporary measures on Camillien-Houde, Mount Royal


Mount Royal – Sometime between the night of Monday September 2nd and Tuesday September 3rd at 5:00am, the temporary traffic measures put in place by the City of Montreal as part of their project on Mount-Royal, will end. On Camillien-Houde way between Maison Smith and the Camilien-Houde belvedere, the alternating one-way lane, with traffic lights controlling cars and taking turns to drive through from each direction, will return to a two lane road. It was a very unpopular and frustrating measure for drivers who used the road on a regular basis.

Other traffic calming devices that were put in place, such as speed bumps and the bollards along the sides of the road separating cyclists and cars, will be maintained until October 31st, the beginning of the winter period. Bollards will also return to the center of the road between Maison Smith and the Camillien-Houde belvedere. This summer’s changes were part of the recommendations made by the Office de Consultation Publique de Montreal after the 2018 summer pilot-project, that saw car access limited on the mountain, was reviewed and public consultations took place. The new measures, implemented since June 2019, were monitored and will be considered in the development of the Camillien-Houde way and Remembrance roads – with the goal of make the road more scenic and safe for cars, cyclists as well as pedestrians.
