The waterproofing membrane that covers the pedestrian passageway at Côte-Vertu station will be completely refurbished. This major project will result in the partial closure of De La Côte-Vertu Boulevard between Gohier and Décarie Streets over very specific phases.
Duration of the work : April 23 avril to November 2019
Description of the work : remplacement of the métro waterproofing membrane
Impact on métro service : no
Impact on bus service : yes
Impacts on customer trips
Access to the métro station and neighbouring businesses will be maintained at all times.
We have recently started the last phase of this major project. This phase consists of the reconstruction of the central median on De La Côte-Vertu Boulevard between Gohier and Décarie Streets. Two traffic lanes will remain open in each direction.
The plan below illustrates the temporary locations of stops during the work. Several stops have been relocated since April 23. They will remain at their temporary location until November 2019.
Impacts on local residents
The work may affect the flow of traffic in the area. We are working closely with the boroughs to minimize the impact on neighbourhood residents as much as possible.
Two westbound lane and two eastbound lanes will remain open to traffic on the southern section of De La Côte-Vertu Boulevard during the last phase of the work.

Replacing a waterproofing membrane requires excavating the ground above it to a depth of several metres. The station spans the entire width of the boulevard, which will have to be excavated along its entire width. However, the work will be carried out in several phases to maintain the flow of traffic on De La Côte-Vertu Boulevard.
Between now and November 2019, the waterproofing membrane that covers the pedestrian passageway at Côte-Vertu station will be completely refurbished. This major project will result in the partial closure of De La Côte-Vertu Boulevard between Gohier and Décarie Streets over very specific phases.
Since excavation will be required, there will be obstructions to car and pedestrian traffic from April 23 until November 2019.
In addition to replacing the waterproofing membrane, we will take advantage of the surface reconstruction to build the traffic lanes for the future bus rapid transit (BRT) service that will connect the Sauvé and Côte-Vertu stations. This will avoid another road closure when the BRT service gets underway in fall 2020.
Since the upcoming work mainly involves the refurbishing of the waterproofing membrane and will be done outside, there will be very few obstructions inside the station.
