Obstruction and detour for cyclists and pedestrians in Mont-Tremblant
Culvert replacement work on the route of the P’tit Train Nord linear park in Mont-Tremblant
Saint-Jérôme, August 20, 2021. – The Ministère des Transports informs road users that culvert replacement work, located on the route of the P’tit Train du Nord linear park, in Mont-Tremblant, will be carried out from August 23 to November 5. A complete closure of the bike path will be necessary for the entire duration of the work over a distance of 2.1 km, between Chemin du Lac-Gélinas and Chemin du Lac-Mercier.
The work will consist of the demolition of the old structure, built in 1937, consisting of three circular steel culverts, in order to replace it with a new prefabricated concrete structure.
The establishment of a designated roadway, shared between motorists and cyclists, will be developed via the Lac-Gélinas, Pont-de-Fer, du Village (route 327) and Lac-Mercier paths, in order to ensure the safety of users traveling on the route of the linear park.
Appropriate signage will be put in place all along the 2.8 km route.
This detour represents an additional 700 meters to the course located on the linear park trail. In addition, the detour path is expected to have a 10% incline in front of the Jim Russell Karting Academy, which is unusual for the route.

Traffic for Chemin du Village (route 327) will only be carried out on shoulders 1.5 meters wide. For other municipal roads, the roadway will be shared between motorists, pedestrians and cyclists.
Crossings will be specially designed at the intersections located on Chemin du Village (Route 327) and Chemin du Lac-Gélinas and Chemin du Pont-de-Fer, to allow safe passage for pedestrians and cyclists.
The speed allowed on Lac-Gélinas and Pont-de-Fer roads will be reduced to 30 km / h while on the portion of Route 327, it will be reduced from 70 to 50 km / h, for any the duration of the work.
Park users are invited to consult the interactive map on the P’tit Train du Nord website for more information on the trail and obstruction in the Explore the trail / Track info section.
Remember that this park was built in 1937, on a former railway right-of-way.
Despite the fact that the site of the work is located above the Lac Mercier landfill, west of the area called Le Village, in Mont-Tremblant, the linear park will be closed to all traffic from each end of the the designated portion of the trail, to ensure site safety.
The duration of the work and the obstacles may be modified due to operational constraints or weather conditions. To find out about current and future obstacles, consult Québec 511, a practical tool for properly planning your trips.
For the safety and health of workers, all the necessary sanitary measures are deployed on this site.
The Department thanks road users for respecting the signs in place in the work zone.
