The mayors of suburban Montreal municipalities do not want to pay for sidewalk construction in the Plateau Mont Royal, and so they’ve filed a lawsuit against the city. The heart of the issue is a $24.7 million project to transform St. Andre St. into a bicycle boulevard.
Earlier this year, Montreal passed a bylaw to change the north-south street so that it will give priority to cyclists and pedestrians, but force drivers to turn onto other streets and so not be able to proceed along the street’s entire length between Cherrier St and Laurier Ave.
