The Town of Notre-Dame-de-l'Île-Perrot (NDIP) announced the early completion of terrain stabilization work in the area of Simone-De Beauvoir Street and 150th Avenue.
As reported in The Journal March 1, the initial phase was expected to be completed March 15 with the second phase scheduled for June 15 after the fish-spawning was over.
The town released a communiqué this week saying that with advantageous circumstances and the implementation of a compressed work schedule, the work was done much faster than expected. In April and May, there will therefore remain only the revegetation of the sectors.
"This is great news for area residents," said NDIP Mayor Danie Deschênes.” From June, they will again be able to take full advantage of their grounds and outdoor facilities."

The weather communiqué said conditions were favourable during the work with no significant snowfall, and the cold allowed for the construction of an ice wall that replaced the turbidity curtain that was required to control the dispersion of sediments during construction.
Deschênes thanked the area residents for their patience and understanding during the work and also since the imposition of the construction ban.
“We will put all our energies to obtain the lifting of the ban on construction as soon as possible,” she said.
