Construction site summary
As part of the Blue line extension project, the purpose of this worksite is to build a new operational infrastructure required to operate the métro. The building will house electrical equipment and some office spaces.
From April 11 to 14, Everett Street will be partially closed at the corner of Saint-Michel Boulevard due to the deconstruction of the building next to Saint-Michel station’s main entrance building.
During these 4 days, the bus stop for the 188 Couture eastbound on Shaughnessy Boulevard will be relocated to the stop for the 41 Quartier Saint-Michel/Ahuntsic, which is 100 feet to the south, near the station entrance.
At the same time, some parking spaces will be blocked on Everett Street near Shaughnessy Boulevard until the end of the deconstruction work.
The work will be finished in early May.
- In March 2023, the building next to Saint-Michel station’s main entrance building, located at the corner of Saint-Michel and Everett, will be deconstructed to secure the site and prepare it for the excavation phase.
- In 2024, excavation work will start.

Information sessions, talks, activities, good neighbour committees: our team wants to meet you!
A power station is an operational infrastructure that houses equipment needed to supply power to the métro network. There are currently 7 power stations located across the STM métro network. The Blue line extension to the east requires that we update our electrical equipment to meet new energy demands.
We will also use the Saint-Michel power station building to house offices that will be used by métro operations employees.
No, this type of infrastructure does not generally generate noise or fumes. However, it houses diesel generators, which are very rarely operated. In addition, there will be a few STM service vehicles parked behind the building.
Keeping the existing building, located at 7355 Saint-Michel Boulevard, was not feasible, as it does not meet all our specific requirements. Métro operational infrastructures must comply with a variety of internationally recognized standards.It is also important to know that the new equipment will be particularly massive and voluminous, which requires custom construction.
Yes, that is our intention. Renovation work are planned for the coming years inside the station, but it will remain functional despite certain constraints.
