  • Ouverture du lien cyclable Sainte-Catherine / Estacade / Île-des-Soeurs

    9 mai 2020

    La Société du parc Jean-Drapeau annonce la réouverture annuelle du lien cyclable Sainte-Catherine / Estacade / Île-des-Soeurs. Ce lien cyclable, situé en bordure de la voie maritime devait ouvrir le 15 avril dernier, mais était demeuré fermé en raison de la pandémie et des mesures mises en place par la Direction de la santé publique.

    Les cyclistes devront cependant faire preuve de patience pour ce qui est du tronçon Estacade / Parc Jean-Drapeau qui mène à la Route verte et au circuit Gilles-Villeneuve. En effet, la crise actuelle retarde son ouverture en raison de potentiels rassemblements de cyclistes sur l'Île Notre-Dame et particulièrement autour du circuit Gilles-Villeneuve.
