About Viaduc 375
VIADUC 375 pays tribute to the Montreal railway heritage by the experience of a pedestrian promenade on the Van Horne overpass. Great performances will highlight three places symbolizing the revitalization of Mile End: Van Horne warehouse, Capitol industrial building and St. Louis old railway yard became “Le Champ des Possibles”. Guided tours will ignite a reflection on the history of the neighborhood and its revitalization.
