Archeological workers lay out the grid on Boulevard René-Lévesque at Avenue Moncton, where the vestiges of an English merchant’s building are thought to be located.

The future construction of the tramway line on Boulevard René-Lévesque has prompted the city to dig into the past.

Archeological digs are underway on two stretches of the busy street where the vestiges of structures dating back to the 1700s are thought to be located.
