The City of Sherbrooke announced further developments in its vision for how to reimagine Grandes-Fourches Boulevard on Wednesday afternoon. Included in the announcement was the news that a call for tenders for the technical aspects of the new Grandes-Fourches Bridge will go out next week or the week after, with the aim of being able to start construction in the fall of 2019. “We should be able to start the rest of the road work in 2020,” said Caroline Gravel, Sherbrooke’s Director of Urban Infrastructure. “We expect to be finished in 2021.” Emphasizing that the plans presented showed the city’s vision of the new road without all of the details assigned specifically, Gravel explained that work on Grandes-Fourches North will begin this coming spring, with a reconstruction of the street between King Street and Meadow. From there work moves to the construction of the new “signature” span over the Magog river and the new road connection to Terrill, which will include the construction of a traffic circle.
