Verdun invites residents to come out and play

Tourisme Montréal

Over the first weeks of June, the borough of Verdun will make it easier for residents to get outside and enjoy the beautiful summer weather by making streets more secure for pedestrians and cyclists while giving more space to merchants on public streets. From early June until the fall of 2020, new installations allow locals to walk, run, cycle and even play freely on certain streets, as well as make shopping in local businesses safer and easier.

Walk, bike and play!

Wellington Street will go pedestrian-only between LaSalle Boulevard and 4th Avenue, starting June 6, offering more space for physical distancing. The borough is also setting up five “bike streets” called vélorues. On these residential streets, cars must give priority to cyclists and ensure cyclist safety when passing. Traffic calming measures on other residential streets will create free play spaces for kids and families to have fun outside together safely.

 

You can view the entire street redevelopment.
