Major cleaning operation | Evening Newspaper

The City of Rimouski informs the population that spring cleaning operations have now begun.

The Public Works Department team is currently maintaining streets, sidewalks, bike paths, developing sports fields and installing speed reduction measures.

“The winter period presented significant challenges this year with the large amount of snow received in a short time and the varied conditions of intense cold and ice, among others. In the coming weeks, our teams will be on the ground day, evening and night to carry out road cleaning and repair operations as quickly as possible. We are making every effort to ensure that citizens can take advantage of the warmer temperatures that are increasingly on the horizon,” said Patrick Caron, Director of the Public Works Department.

Sports grounds

The development of outdoor sports facilities is done gradually according to weather conditions and melting snow, until the beginning of June. Some facilities are already ready for use or about to be: the synthetic field, the basketball court, the athletics track, the skateboard park and the roller track (“pumptrack”).

In the coming days, the cycle paths, modules and play areas as well as the tennis and beach volleyball courts will be laid out. The soccer and baseball fields will be accessible at the beginning of June, until the surfaces dry out completely.

“To ensure that the ground remains in optimal condition for the summer period, the City of Rimouski is counting on the cooperation of the population in order to avoid using grassed areas until June. Note also that repair work is planned on the baseball fields of the Guillaume-Leblanc sports complex during the months of May and June. from the city.

Remember that the City of Rimouski maintains more than 400 km of roads, 115 km of sidewalks and 50 km of cycle paths.
