Long-term closure of the Lyman Duff Lot due to the service tunnel construction project until April 22, 2016

The Lyman Duff Lot, accessed from Av. des Pins, just east of University, has been closed to permit holder and visitor parking since Monday, April 14th, 2014 to facilitate the service tunnel project. The parking lot will only be accessible to construction vehicles for the duration of the project, which is expected to take over a year (expected completion date is April 22, 2016).

Pedestrians will be redirected to the 3775 University entrance of the building.

Those with All Areas (“C”) or Lyman Duff (“L”) permits may park in the MNI Lot starting April 14th. The entrance to this parking lot is located just north of 3801 University, on the right-hand side (the same side as the Neuro and Molson Stadium).

Permit holder parking is not permitted under the north stands of the stadium on weekdays between 6am and 6pm, to facilitate parking for daily visitors, most of which are patients or their family members or friends. Permit holders must instead park in the middle field just past the stadium during that time frame.

Service tunnel project affecting the access to the MNI lot until June 2016

Contractors for the service tunnel project have been working behind the new expansion of the Neuro since the fall of 2014. A portion of the lane passage to the parking spaces has remained blocked. Personnel have been put on site to direct traffic and ensure the safety of pedestrians. The work in this zone is expected to be completed sometime in June of 2016. A map indicating the affected area is available here: PDF icon Map of parking area affected by the service tunnel project (Neuro)

More information about the service tunnel project is available here: PDF icon construction_start_notice_2015.11.16.pdf

To ensure the safety of all drivers and pedestrians, please drive slowly and carefully through the affected area.

Entrance to the Drummond Lot via Hosmer House (3630 Promenade Sir William Osler) is closed indefinitely (Mountain Street entrance remains open)

Due to a serious masonry problem at the Hosmer House, the access to the Drummond lot via the Hosmer House driveway (3630 Promenade Sir William Osler) has been closed indefinitely until the masonry is repaired. The two spaces in front of Hosmer House have also been condemned for parking indefinitely until the masonry is repaired. Construction fencing will be placed around the Hosmer House by December 14, 2015.

Vehicles requiring access to the Drummond Lot must enter and exit the lot from Mountain Street (rue de la Montagne), via the lane just behind 3605 Mountain. The Mountain Street entrance will remain open.

Indefinite closure of 3690 Peel Lot

A damaged cornice and ongoing building inspections at 3690 Peel has resulted in the parking lot being closed to vehicular access until further notice. A sign has been placed in the affected area to indicate that vehicles must not park there.

Vehicles may park in their overflow zones, such as Drummond lot (entry via De La Montagne Street only) and Duggan House.

Support beams in McIntyre garage

Support beams have been installed beside some of the concrete columns located on levels 2 through 7 in the garage which the structural engineering firm that has inspected the garage has identified as needing repair. These additional support beams are required as a precaution.

Parking spaces blocked in the FDA Lot for structural inspection until further notice

Several parking spaces in the north-east part of the FDA lot will be blocked beginning August 19, 2015 for an undetermined period of time. This is necessary for a structural inspection. Initially, the spaces will be blocked with metal no parking signs and tape which will later be replaced by fencing.

For a map indicating the area that will be blocked, please click on the following link: fda-structural-inspection.pdf

Due to the reduction of parking spaces in the lot, permit holders should use their overflow zone if there no parking is available upon arrival.

Vehicle circulation restrictions in front of the Leacock Building until further notice

Vehicle circulation on the roadway area in front of the Leacock Building is restricted to:

  • Vehicles having 2 axles
  • Small trucks (4 wheels only)

Heavy or oversized vehicles, those with more than 2 axles or those having more than 4 wheels are prohibited from driving in the restricted area. For a map indicating this area, please click on the following link: main_campus_-_circulation_restrictions_in_front_of_leacock.pdf

These restrictions will remain in place until further notice but are expected to be long term. They are necessary because of concerns relating to the structure of the road bed between the Redpath Museum and the Leacock Building.

The information should be relayed to affected suppliers, contractors, deliveries, and service technicians.

Parking restrictions at the Purvis Hall lot due to masonry project until further notice

The masonry contractor at Purvis Hall has cordoned off an area around the building with fences for the safety of pedestrians in the area while they are doing masonry work. Three out of the six parking spaces in this lot are inaccessible during the project. A projected completion date has not been given.

Permit holders using this lot may park in other “B2” zones until the project is completed. The largest of these lots is Drummond. Please click on designations and overflow in the left sidebar for a map of these locations.
