Weekend driving notes and more

Some notes on what to avoid if driving anywhere this weekend. Metro has some longer term details on roadwork and related projects around town, including the REM.

Even though the initial layout of the REM is far from complete, the Caisse de dépôt is planning a second phase in the east end, one branch linking Pointe-aux-Trembles to downtown, the other going along highway 25. Also, a new tax on suburbanites is being floated to finance the REM.
