Beaune – Home straight: final redevelopment of the circular boulevard from July 22

The redevelopment work on the Beaune circular boulevard, which began on Monday April 5, is nearing completion, gradually transforming the face of this essential artery of the city.
Initially composed of three lanes, the section between La Poste and rue Armand Gouffé now sees its roadway narrowed to two lanes. This adaptation made it possible to widen the sidewalks to better accommodate pedestrians and cyclists, thus facilitating smooth and safe mobility.
The esplanade at Porte Marie de Bourgogne has benefited from an aesthetic renovation, incorporating new parking at the edge of the roadway (6 spaces) and greenery which should be increased. These improvements aim to enrich the urban landscape while providing friendly spaces for residents.

Night intervention: shot blasting of the Saint-Jacques and rue d’Alsace crossroads
These main works having been completed, it remains to finalize the installation of the street furniture and the plantings.
The intersection of Boulevard Saint-Jacques and Rue d’Alsace will be shot blasted at the beginning of July (more gray surface), overnight to minimize disruption to traffic, with closure from 8 p.m. for a duration of 7 to 8 hours . This intervention, announced by the mayor as being quiet, marks the continuity of rue Faubourg Madeleine-city center and reinforces the priority given to pedestrians.

Next step: finalizing the redevelopment
From Monday July 22, the last phase will begin for the portion between the Lorraine car park and the Charles Jaffelin crossroads, towards the War Memorial. The work will follow the same pattern of narrowing from three to two lanes to widen the sidewalks. Traffic on the circular boulevard will never be completely interrupted, with at least one lane open during the day. A municipal decree will limit traffic to a single lane from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. until the end of the construction site. A temporary closure of the boulevard is planned for one to two days for the laying of the asphalt.
This work is planned so as not to disrupt bus traffic during the start of the school year.
These two phases of redevelopment of the circular boulevard represent a significant investment of 1.4 million euros, with the companies Eurovia-Rougeot for the roadway and Terideal for the green spaces at the helm.
