The station will remain open and accessible at all times. The worksite will not block the station doors leading out to Rosemont Boulevard.

  • The worksite area will cover the bus loop and the sidewalk next to the Marc-Favreau library. Pedestrians will no longer be able to cross between the métro station or Rosemont Boulevard and Des Ateliers Street.
  • The sidewalk in front of the station will be closed at times. A walkway will be set up in the street to ensure pedestrian safety.
  • The section of the bike path that runs alongside the Marc-Favreau library will be blocked during the work.
  • Bus stops in the area were previously relocated due to the OMHM construction site. Some of them may need to be moved again, near the station. Signage will be installed on site telling you where to go, and more information will be available soon on this page.

Impact on local residents

The work will be done Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., in accordance with municipal by-laws. Some work may need to be done at night, while the métro is not in operation. Full information will be communicated to residents living near the worksite.

We care about the quality of life of residents living close to our facilities. Rest assured that we will take all measures necessary to keep the impact on residents, businesses and customers to a minimum.

What is a waterproofing membrane?
The waterproofing membrane protects the station from water infiltrations. It covers the station’s underground roof and is therefore located underground. Rosemont’s waterproofing membrane dates back to the station’s initial construction and has reached the end of its useful life.

We coordinated our work with that of the Office municipal d’habitation de Montréal (OMHM) to ensure that both worksites wrap up as quickly as possible and have the least possible impact on your activities. We will also be redeveloping the square around the station into a new public space, on behalf of the City of Montréal.

Redevelopment of the square around the station into a new public space, on behalf of the City of Montréal

With new green spaces and bicycle racks, the redeveloped square will be a pleasant, people-focused place of connection for public transit users and neighbourhood residents alike.

Located next to the Marc-Favreau library and the Réseau-Vert multi-functional trail, the new space will add the last touch to the redevelopment of the site of former municipal workshop buildings. The project will also align with the sustainable development goals in the City of Montréal’s 2020-2030 Climate Plan (French only) and with the Rosemont–La-Petite-Patrie borough’s ecological transition efforts.

Project summary

Since September 2019, the Office municipal d’habitation de Montréal (OMHM) has been working on constructing the Îlot Rosemont project, a building adjacent to Rosemont métro station that will house 193 apartments for seniors.

In 2021, we will take advantage of the OMHM’s construction site to replace the station’s waterproofing membrane, which has reached the end of its useful life.

Duration of the work: September 2019 to fall 2022

Description of the work: Construction site near the station

Métro impacts: No

Bus impacts: Yes

Impact on customer trips

  • The station will remain accessible at all times via Rosemont Boulevard.
  • During the work, bus stops will be relocated to Rosemont Boulevard and Saint-Denis Street, near the station. See the map below for the location of your bus stop.
  • The following bus lines will make a short detour on Des Carrières as they will no longer be able to turn around in the Rosemont terminus bus loop:
  • 197 Rosemont
  • 31 Saint-Denis
  • 13 Christophe-Colomb
  • 25 Angus
  • The 161 Van Horne will make a westbound detour on Saint-Hubert, Bellechasse and Saint-Denis before returning to Van Horne.
  • Bike racks are now behind the Marc-Favreau public library and on the Saint-Denis service road near the overpass.

We are aware of the inconvenience that this work might cause. Rest assured that we will do what is necessary to minimize the impact on our customers.
