October 06, 2021

Update on October 27, 2021: Unfavourable weather conditions over the last few weeks have delayed the work by approximately one week.

The Town of Montreal West would like to inform its citizens of a major road closure to take place on Westminster Avenue South. Starting October 12, Westminster Avenue South will be completely closed to traffic between Avon Road and Ainslie Road.

This closure is expected to last approximately three weeks and is necessary for the relocation of the water and sewer lines as part of the redevelopment project at 45 Westminster Avenue South. Due to the depth of the work on the street, temporary crossing on weekends will not be possible. Schedule delays may occur in the case of bad weather conditions or any other unforeseen event.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this work.

Planned detours

This road closure will have significant impacts on traffic in our Town. To help you get around during the work, detour routes will be set up. We recommend following the signs that will be installed indicating the route to take and to allow extra time when travelling.

  • Coming from Sherbrooke towards Westminster, drivers will have to take a right on Westminster. Drivers must take Brougthon Road to access Ainslie.
  • Coming from Westminster North towards Avon, drivers will have to take a left on Sherbrooke and a right on Elmhurst in order to get to Avon Road.
  • Coming from Ainslie toward Westminster South, drivers will have to take a left on Westminster and a right on Broughton and another right on Connaught or Elmhurst in order to get to Avon Road.
  • Coming from Brynmor, drivers will have to take a right on Avon and then a left on Elmhurst to access Sherbrooke.

The whole area between Broughton and Avon will be open to local traffic only.
