Catherine Road between Victoria Ave. and Côte des Neiges Rd. for a period of several months. Expected impact will include traffic delays,full or partial closure of streets and intersections, limited street parking in the surrounding neighbourhood and the rerouting of the 129 bus (westbound – towards Décarie) to Edouard-Montpetit and Victoria, where it will stop in front of the Côte-Sainte-Catherine métro.
