Project description

Integration of Victoria Street and the Old Canal East, Salaberry-de-Valleyfield

 

By developing a recreational park and a cultural site between the canal and Victoria Street into an iconic site, Salaberry-de-Valleyfield brands itself a shoreline town. A riparian strip was thus created to provide all citizens and tourists with a unique “natural and sustainable” environment. Cost: $15 million.

Returning the canal’s shores to their natural state was crucial. The vegetation-rich protective abutment was calibrated to help filter the water. Indigenous species of plants, trees, shrubs, grasses and perennials were selected for their ecological properties and their adaptation to wetlands.

In addition, the Jean-De La Lande bridge, a historic pedestrian structure of historic importance, was installed at the Old Canal.

Bolduc Avenue concrete pavers cover 14,776 sq. ft. of the layout.
