Jonathan Custeau La Tribune A new road construction site will open near Boulevard de Portland this week, but it should not add to the problems already observed on this main artery. Work is indeed starting on rue Chartier, but at the intersection of rue White as a priority.
Caroline Gravel, director of the Urban Infrastructure Department at the City of Sherbrooke, specifies that rue Chartier is perpendicular to Boulevard de Portland.
“We'll have it for over two weeks and by the time we get to Portland, work on King West will be complete. On Fréchette, we are supposed to have completed the portion near Portland Boulevard within two weeks. The work must always start at the low point and in the site of rue Fréchette, it was on Portland, while for Chartier, it is on rue White. That's why we start at the other end. “
Since last Friday, the City has given two lanes to motorists on Portland Boulevard for the evening rush hour, but it observes that they still use only one lane. A flagman must be dispatched to the scene to improve fluidity.
