Movement and distancing: Are Montreal streets in transition?

Lecture presented online on June 17, 2020

The street is a space for movement and urban life.  Montreal’s arteries have undergone radical changes since the beginning of the pandemic. They were emptied of their usual traffic, and some were urgently transformed into public health corridors. Today, as the city reopens, these streets are part of a well-thought-out temporary plan to facilitate safe active movement.

Will the city’s emergency decisions give way to a reorganization of how the streets are shared as a living space in the heart of our neighbourhoods? What will be the impact on daily life in our commercial streets? Will we be able to take advantage of the circumstances to make way for a completely new urban planning process over the long term?
