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
