In Sainte-Adèle, Québec, Rue Valiquette has been the commercial artery and center for local businesses since the mid-1960s. The street is also the main tourist attraction in the small town of around 12,000 people. Locals and tourists visit the cinema and various restaurants in the area.
The city embarked upon a renovation of the downtown street aimed at improving traffic flow and rejuvenating business in the district. As part of the renovation, traffic direction of part of the street was changed and street parking was modified to facilitate both automobile and pedestrian flow.
And, as with any revitalization project, lighting played a key part. Cyclone’s Paseo luminaire was used to illuminate both the street and parking spaces in the area. Paseo luminaires were installed on existing bases, but the advanced optical system gives a more uniform and comfortable light than its predecessors.
Duplex receptacles and banner arms were added to poles to help create promote events and celebrate holidays.
With its avant-garde aesthetic, the installation of Paseo in Rue Valiquette looks stunning in the daytime as well as in the evening, creating and inviting and safe environment for visitors.
