Field Perspective Episode 5 :

The Ruisseau Clair Culverts​, meeting new hydraulic capacity requirements while improving accessibility to downtown Mont-Tremblant

This is the 5th episode of our “Field Perspective” series in which we unveil video clips that illustrate the diversity and innovation of our projects. For this episode, our film crew went to Mont-Tremblant to show you the images of the Ruisseau Clair Culverts, a project to redevelop various culverts and footbridges to meet new hydraulic capacity requirements while improving accessibility to downtown Mont-Tremblant.

The Ruisseau Clair is a beautiful waterway that flows through downtown Mont-Tremblant and into the Diable River at an impressive waterfall east of the city. The culverts and footbridges project was designed to meet a minimum hydraulic capacity of 25 years for one section of the creek and 100 years for the other. The rehabilitation of a deteriorating public parking lot near the Passerelle du Ruisseau Clair also improved accessibility to the downtown area. Our teams carried out the geotechnical study, the structural calculations, the hydrological study, the civil engineering, and the supervision of the works. Cédrik Auzuech, project manager in the Urban Infrastructure Department of Sainte-Agathe, explains in more detail what this is all about, with the breathtaking images of our drone pilot, Andreï Paul Petrescu, survey technician at FNX-INNOV.
