Impact on customer trips

Starting May 16, line 131 De L’Assomption will be rerouted, and some stops will be closed on lines 32 Lacordaire, 141 Jean-Talon, 353 Lacordaire and 372 Jean-Talon.

Please check bus stop signage or our real-time information tools for more details on the detours that will be in effect starting May 16.

Line 32 Lacordaire

Stops at the intersection with Jean-Talon will be closed. The stop at the corner of Bourdaloue, south of Jean-Talon, will also be closed. Buses will still serve the stops before and after.

Line 131 De L’Assomption

The north terminus of line 131 will remain on Des Angevins at all times. Due to work at the Jean-Talon and Lacordaire intersection, there will be no access to the portion of the route normally served outside of peak periods (stops #60588, #60604 and #54970).

Lines 141 and 372 Jean-Talon

Stops at the corner of Jean-Talon and Lacordaire will be closed. Buses will still serve the stops before and after.

Line 353 Lacordaire

The stop at the corner of Bourdaloue, south of Jean-Talon, will be closed. Buses will still serve the stops before and after.

Impact on local residents

The preparatory worksite for the construction of the future Lacordaire station was put on hiatus in mid-December 2021. Due to winter weather, we had to install some provisional roadwork. Now that it is spring, we can start finalizing the sidewalks and streets in the area.

The work will require partial closures on Jean-Talon Street and Lacordaire Boulevard. The work will be completed in phases over a five-week period. At least one lane will remain open at all times in each direction, on both Jean-Talon and Lacordaire. For a few days, there will also be a closure on Lacordaire Boulevard at the corner of Bourdaloue Street.

The map below shows the different work areas

  • Zone A will be active for the full duration of the work.
  • Zone B will be active for 2 to 3 weeks.
  • Zone C will be active for 2 periods of 2 days each

Learn more about the project

The work involved relocating urban public utilities, giving us free rein to begin the massive excavation that will be needed to build the new métro station. The utilities that needed to be relocated included water pipes, sewers and underground conduits and cabling.

We will keep you informed as the project progresses and let you know when construction will begin.

Yes. When we conduct the mass excavation to build the new métro station entrance building, the land will be decontaminated in compliance with current environmental standards.

Made up of citizens interested in representing their community, the purpose of the committee is to:

  • Promote dialogue between citizens and the STM during the work
  • Share information regarding the progress of the work and next steps with citizens
  • Listen to the concerns of citizens during the work and find solutions together

Projects like the preparatory work in the Lacordaire area need to be planned months in advance. Together, our experienced technicians, engineers and project managers employ their knowledge of a variety of disciplines: civil engineering, structure, electricity, building mechanics, geotechnics, traffic maintenance and sustainable development, to name just a few.

Our design, project management and follow-up teams are putting their expertise to good use in the east end of the city, and all this is just the beginning!
