Montreal plans to resurface its side of Côte Saint-Luc Road along two stretches this summer, a project that will run from May to October.

The two stretches are between King Edward and Walkley avenues and between Randall and Hingston avenues, for a total of about 800 metres of road.

"It's a great idea because this road in Côte Saint-Luc is pretty bad," said resident Benjamin Poncet, who was walking his dog Thursday morning. 

Poncet said he's not worried about how long it will take, "as long as they fix it"

A large section of Côte Saint-Luc Road runs along the boundary between the Montreal borough of Notre-Dame-de-Grâce to the south and the city of Côte Saint-Luc to the north.

The city of Montreal is also planning a major project along parts of Côte Saint-Luc Road in 2023 to replace infrastructure.

Sochi Chap takes the bus to work nearly every day, and her bus stop is on Côte Saint-Luc Road.

She said her bus is late almost every day, and she's worried about the effect the construction will have on her commute.

"I'm going to have to get out even more earlier. That's the biggest issue, honestly," she said.
