TECHNICAL TOURS

It is currently the perfect moment for a civil engineer to visit the City! The Greater Montreal area is undergoing a transformation and is full of large-scale projects, including the new Champlain Bridge and the Turcot Interchange. You will be invited to visit one of these taking part in the technical tours that will be offered.

TURCOT INTERCHANGE PROJECT

Turcot interchange is a hub for road traffic in Montréal area interconnecting highways 15, 20 and 720 in addition of facilitating access to the Champlain Bridge. It is also an essential road link between Montreal-Pierre-Elliott Trudeau international airport and downtown Montréal. The budget of the Turcot project is $3.67 billion. After almost 50 years of service, the Turcot interchange, one of the most important interchange in Québec which has a traffic volume of more than 300 000 vehicles per day, must be rebuilt. Turcot Project also includes the reconstruction of Angrignon, De La Vérendrye and Montréal-Ouest interchanges, and adjacent sections of highways 15, 20 and 720. Advance registration for this tour only must be done 1 week in advance at the latest. You must bring with you your hard hat and steel boots.

JEAN-R. MARCOTTE WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT

It is at the wastewater treatment plant Jean-R. Marcotte that all sanitary wastewater from the island of Montreal is transported, as well as stormwater from the combined sewer system. The treatment plant is the 3rd largest in the world. It can treat up to 7.6 million m3 in wet weather. The station treats half the wastewater of all Quebec, the equivalent of the interior volume of the Montreal Olympic Stadium on average every day. The visit will be in two parts, the first will be held in the auditorium of the station of the administrative building and the second outside. We suggest that you dress according to the weather. This visit is not recommended for pregnant women. This t0ur will be in English and NOT in French.

When: Friday, June 14 from 9am to 12pm

OLYMPIC STADIUM AND TOWER OF MONTREAL

The Olympic Stadium is the largest indoor amphitheater in Quebec with 56,000 stepped seats and a possibility of 60,000 seats when the parterre is laid out. Since its inauguration in 1976, nearly 66 million people have visited it. Designed by French architect Roger Taillibert, the Montreal Olympic Stadium is a unique monument in the world, which has become Montreal’s international icon. The tour will begin with a more general guided tour of the Stadium and its facilities. Subsequently, a more technical visit will focus on the technical challenges of the Stadium’s construction, its iconic roof, and the revitalization of the Montreal Tower, also known as the Olympic Stadium Tower. At a height of 165 meters and a 45-degree inclination angle, it is the tallest inclined tower in the world. The speaker will present the challenges associated with the repair of the outer shell of the Olympic Stadium Tower and the replacement of curtain walls. Please note that if you attend this tour you will be missing part of the CSCE AGM.

When: Friday, June 14 from 1:30pm to 5pm
