Reconstruction of Saint-Paul St.

October 30, 2015 / Posted by   SDC Vieux-Montréal 

By the way. . .

Saint-Paul St. is one of the oldest commercial streets in Montréal. It was officially created in 1673 by Sulpician fathers taking the road that ran along the northern edge of the commune. Named for Saint-Paul, it also evokes Paul de Chomedey de Maisonneuve, the first governor of Montréal. Today, Saint-Paul is still the main commercial street of the historical site of Montréal.

Since the last major work done on the street dates back to the 1980s, the city has made it a priority to resurface it. The work is part of the Plan de protection et de mise en valeur du Vieux-Montréal adopted by the city council at its sitting on August 26, 2013.

The project protects foot traffic in Old Montréal to ensure the commercial vitality of the street.

3-phase project

The city’s 3-phase plan will redevelop Saint-Paul from Côte Berri to McGill:

  • Phase 1: section between Place Jacques-Cartier and Côte Berri, including some neighbouring streets: Côte Berri between Champ-de-Mars and De la Commune, as well as Bonsecours, Marché-Bonsecours and Bonneau.
  • Phase 2: section between Place Jacques-Cartier and Saint-Sulpice.
  • Phase 3: section between Saint-Sulpice and McGill, including the access to Place Royale.
