It looks like Montreal’s roads will undergo some serious improvements, which could mean even more construction in the city.

The City of Montreal announced its $6.38-billion capital-works budget for 2018-2020 today. The budget outlines how much money will be spent on major infrastructure projects over the next three years.

A majority of the budget ($4,117 billion) will be spent on improving the city’s water supply and sewer systems. Over $2 billion will be allocated towards the city’s road infrastructure.

“Although this is a transition program, we are proud of the choices we have made: we have questioned many decisions made by the former administration and set new priorities according to our values,” said Plante on Twitter.

The Mayor and her staff announced the full city budget earlier this month.
