COVID-19

The resumption of construction work is part of the Québec government’s plan to reopen various economic sectors during the COVID-19 pandemic. The resumption of work is a clear sign of the city’s economic recovery and is being deployed in line with the prevention conditions recommended by Québec’s public health authorities. 

The city will put measures in place to prevent the risk of contamination for workers and other people at or near the construction sites, and would like to remind everyone that infection control is a shared responsibility.

The city will assess the situation regularly and ensure that all measures recommended by the Direction régionale de santé publique are implemented.


Rehabilitation and improvement of the parking lot and bicycle and pedestrian walkways in Senneville Park (drainage, paving, lighting and landscaping)

May 29, 2020

The repair work in Senneville Park will begin on June 1, 2020 for a period of 4 weeks and will end on June 26, 2020. This work was originally scheduled to start on May 4, 2020 but was delayed by the pandemic. This work will be carried out by the contractor Pavages Vaudreuil, supervised by the engineering firm EXP, and the materials used for this project are controlled by the Solmatech laboratory.
 
The Park will be completely closed for the duration of the work, including access to the tennis courts. Trucks will use Pacific Avenue to access Boulevard des Anciens-Combattants. No weekend work is planned.

With a view to building solid foundations, drainage work will be carried out around the parking lot and tennis courts, as well as along the George-McLeish Community Centre and through certain parts of the Park. Electrical work will also be carried out, including the addition of new LED lighting and an electric charging station for 2 vehicles. The parking lot will be paved to create a smooth, solid and secure surface all year round for visitors accessing our municipal facilities. Trees will be planted along the sides of the parking lot, which will provide additional shaded areas. Once the drainage work surrounding the tennis courts is completed, we will restore the surface of the clay courts. A new walking and cycling trail will link the cycling path from the Park access road to the entrance to the Park. It will be set back from the parking lot in the current space behind the properties on Pacific Avenue, which will ensure safer traffic. Additional bike racks will be added. The trails between the parking lot and the George-McLeish community centre, the tennis courts and the swimming pool will be redeveloped on solid foundations. A trail will also connect the new trails of the Senneville-sur-le-Parc development.

This following work described below will conclude the first phase of renovation of the park started in the fall of 2019.
 
The pool area was renovated in the fall of 2019. The fence has been replaced to comply with new regulations. This work has enlarged the fenced area surrounding the pool, which provides more green space for visitors. The entrance to the pool has also been moved. Swimmers will now enter through a new door on the pool side of the George-McLeish Community Centre. This allows year-round access to the building, while bringing swimmers directly into the locker room corridor after validating their membership / resident status during the summer months. On rainy days, this space will offer an informal place to teach the theoretical concepts of swimming and lifesaving lessons.
 
As soon as you enter the Park, the first recreational facility is the ice rink. Last fall, the players' entry was moved from the front / behind the net to a side entry. The front entrance has been replaced by maintenance work doors for maintenance work. A small shelter was built near the entrance to the rink, thus creating a comfortable covered space. The shelter includes a bench to put on skates and lockers to store boots and bags.
 
The reopening of the park and its tennis courts can be expected for June 27, 2020.

Unidirectional flushing program

October 2019

Between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., the Village of Senneville’s public works, will proceed with the unidirectional flushing.

 

What does the process involve?

The unidirectional flushing of the water distribution system is a systematic removal of non-solidified deposits using water velocity. An organized and strategic manipulation of hydrants to be flushed and valves ensures that the source of water used to clean always comes from previously flushed sections, with minimal disturbance to surrounding areas. 

Consequently, you could experience a slight temporary loss of water pressure and your water could also be rust coloured. This may cause some inconvenience such as stains on fabrics.  However, there is no risk for your health.

 

What to do in case of rusty water?

The Village of Senneville suggests that you leave the cold water running until water loses its colouration.

As this is a large-scale operation, covering the village south system, your water could be rust coloured on several different occasions.  However, you can do your laundry and dishes after hours and days above-mentioned as no work is carried out between these hours.

The Village of Senneville apologizes for the inconveniences associated with this work necessary to maintain the quality of service, and thanks you for your understanding.

Some of the operations may cause drops in the water pressure or water that is rusty in colour. The water should return to normal if you let it run a few minutes, preferably in the bathtub.

Although rusty water is not hazardous to your health, it may cause some inconvenience such as spots on your laundry. To avoid damage, we recommend that you check the water colour before filling your washing machine or any other appliance that uses water.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Traffic Management - Significant Nighttime Closures in the Area

Starting May 27 until the end of July, partial and complete night closures will be required on Highway 40 (Félix-Leclerc) in either direction. The first interventions involve the roadway dedicated to eastbound traffic. During complete closures, road users will be redirected to the opposite road, in the opposite direction.

Île-aux-Tourtes Bridge

The interventions do not require any complete obstruction of Île-aux-Tourtes Bridge.. It should be noted, however, that bridge maintenance work is planned for this summer and for the next few months once this project is completed. As in previous years, dynamic traffic management will maintain three open lanes on the bridge in the direction of the peak. The schedule and details of the work will be communicated at the appropriate time.

In the event of adverse weather conditions or operational constraints, the work and detours could be postponed or canceled.
