Mont-Louis Wharf riprap project

News Release

August 10, 2016 – Mont-Louis, Quebec – Transport Canada

Transport Canada is pleased to announce a project to transform the East Mont-Louis Wharf, which the Department owns.

The project will transform the wharf into a breakwater while maintaining its current layout. It will also make it possible to secure the site, meet environmental requirements and continue protecting the shorelines against erosion.

Quick Facts

  • The wharf’s configuration helps protect part of the bay of Mont-Louis against bank erosion caused by waves.
  • The Mont-Louis Wharf was built in 1955. For safety reasons, access to the wharf has been prohibited for nearly 15 years.
