Work progress by region
Construction of the power line started in Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean.
Nature of the project
Hydro-Québec is presently carrying out tree clearing work according to schedule in the Lanaudière region. Work in the Laurentides region ended in spring 2016.
Clearing is done by the owner or assigned to a contractor. Whenever possible, work crews will use the roads built within Hydro-Québec’s servitude. Negotiations will be carried out with landowners to build new access roads or for the use of existing roads outside the servitude.
