Federal Environmental Assessment
The environmental assessment consists of a planning process to assess the project’s impact on the environment and to propose measures to mitigate those effects. Throughout the analysis, the bridge conception and construction techniques will be examined to allow decision making that respects the environment and the community.
Open houses on the Environmental Assessment
The twelve open house sessions that took place in December 2012 and April 2013 in Brossard, l`île des Soeurs and the districts of the south-west and Verdun of Montréal, allowed officials from numerous federal departments implicated in the environmental assessment to meet and engage with the public on different aspects of the project and environment. These events also allowed member of the public to provide written comments on site. These constructive comments have been taken into account by the federal government and have strengthened the environmental assessment.
