Video: The Chamouchouane project in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean and Mauricie regions
Welcome to the jobsite!
Construction manager Jocelyn Jean invites us to the northernmost reaches of the Chamouchouane site.
Beginning at La Doré substation, the new power transmission line will run for over 200 km through Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean and the Mauricie.
Construction of the project, which takes place in the forest on many sites simultaneously, involves a small army of workers.

Companies on the groundOngoing and future work
An increase in traffic is expected near jobsites in the morning and at the end of the day. Safety precautions are recommended at all times. Keep your distance and respect the speed limit and all signage.
Safety near the worksite
Hydro-Québec asks residents to be particularly careful near jobsites. Various types of equipment will be used to carry out the work, including on weekends. It is therefore very important to remain clear of the work areas.For more information
