City officials say the goal is to “help the public make their daily commute easier,” while improving site management and coordination.

They state that the Info Entraves et Travaux map is automatically generated based on all temporary public occupancy permits issued by the city districts.


“With most jobs not managed by the Ville de Montréal, we wanted to ensure that all permits issued by the boroughs are automatically centralized,” explains Emilie Tuillier, executive committee responsible for maintenance of infrastructures, buildings and assets a’ part “This is a big step forward that will help optimize the work of our teams in the field, allow the public to geolocate obstacles and avoid unpleasant surprises.”

The city administration hopes that the map will increase the responsibility of contractors.

“Citizens will be able to find out, for example, who is responsible for the work, which company is doing it, the nature of the work, the expected duration, the area occupied and the impact, including the number of parking spaces affected. “, it says.

Officials say it’s the latest in a series of measures to limit the impact of construction on the area, including dismantling “phantom” workplaces and removing redundant signage.

Montreal boroughs issue about 55,000 permits for temporary occupation of public property each year.
