Feds funding road infrastructure around Port of Montreal

A road link will be created between the port and the Trans-Canada highway.


The Federal Government has committed $45.8 million for road infrastructure in the City of Montréal adjacent to the Port of Montréal.

The project provides a direct link between the Port of Montreal and the highway to reduce congestion on downtown’s Notre-Dame Street and ensure containers continually move from the terminals.

The work will involve extending De l’Assomption Boulevard between Notre-Dame and Pierre-de-Coubertin streets, making it possible to connect a new road at the port exit to the future extension of Souligny Avenue.

A road link will be created between the port and the Trans-Canada highway.

  • Canada’s trade with the Pacific Rim is no longer limited to the west coast: in 2006, trade with Asia in 2006 was a small part of the Port of Montreal’s market, by 2016, it represented 25% of traffic at the port.
  • At rush hour, nearly 3,500 vehicles transit to the Dickson and Notre-Dame intersection.
  • The three container terminals in the east of Montréal generate nearly 3,600 daily truck movements.

    Mean while, east coast ports, you know the ones open year round, suffer from poor rail service while Canadian taxpayers pay hundreds of millions of dollars to keep the St. Lawrence seaway open an extra 30 days in the winter. I won’t mention the whales being killed in the Gulf of St. Lawrence by needless shipping to Montreal. Politics as usual. Nothing new here.
