Starting on June 1, through traffic on Mont Royal’s Camillien-Houde Way will be blocked due to a controversial pilot project that was announced in February.

The purpose of the pilot project is to increase safety measures on Mount Royal.

In October 2017, a young cyclist was hit and killed by an SUV that made an illegal U-turn as he was going downhill on a curve near the lookout on Camillien-Houde.

Mayor Valérie Plante announced a timeline of the pilot project on Wednesday.

On Twitter, Plante provided more details regarding the pilot project and a public consultation.

Beginning May 1, the OCPM (Montreal Public Advisory Office) will begin public consultations regarding  Camillien-Houde Way.

“The consultations will accompany the implementation of the pilot project and will begin one month before it begins,” said Plante.

The pilot project closing Camillien-Houde Way will run from June 1 to October 3, 2018.

“During the pilot project activities with the public will be organized to assess the impacts, understand the needs and study the proposed solutions,” said Plante.

The OCPM is expected to table a final report on the pilot project by January 2019.
