Plans for Montreal Road are shaping up and the community will soon get to have their say about it.

Montreal road between North River Road and St. Laurent Boulevard will be completely redone starting in 2018.

The city will hold an open house on the proposed changes on March 9 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health, 299 Montreal Rd.

(...)Proposals include a separate cycling path 1.5 metres wide on the north side of Montreal Road, an on-road painted line cycling path on the south side, and a change from four lanes, with parking to a hybrid of three lanes from North River to the Vanier Parkway. Also proposed is a flexible four-lane road from the parkway to St. Laurent, with a priority lane for transit-only, and parking during off-peak times.
