Please note that the Montreal Police close University Street (between Sherbrooke and Pine Avenue) to vehicular traffic one to two hours before the start of a Montreal Alouettes football game. Approximately half an hour after the game begins, the street is re-opened to traffic. The street is closed off again for a short period of time at the end of the game.

Temporary reopening of the Lyman Duff Lot effective April 27, 2016

The Lyman Duff Lot, accessed from Av. des Pins, just east of University, has been temporarily reopened to permit holder parking effective Wednesday, April 27, while the work involving the lot has been halted. Once the work resumes, an email will be sent to permit holders to advise them that the lot will be closed once more.

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.

Lift operations on University Street near the entrance to the MNI / Residences lot on various dates: Feb 15 to July 22, 2016

The company Rainville et Freres will be reconstructing the oriel window located on the north façade of the McConnell wing of the Montreal Neuro. The contractor will begin mobilizing on Monday, February 15. The expected completion date is on or before July 22, 2016.

The work will involve the placement of a crane or Nacelle truck on University Street on various dates between February 15 until the project is completed for façade inspections, scaffolding installation and work related to the reconstruction of the oriel window. When present, the crane or Nacelle truck will obstruct the northbound lane of University Street. Agents will be on site to direct traffic around the crane or Nacelle truck so that vehicles will still be able to access the Residences and MNI lots at all times. The ambulance entrance will also remain accessible at all times.

Please drive slowly and carefully in this area to ensure the safety of the workers, pedestrians, and other drivers.

Entrance to the Drummond Lot via Hosmer House (3630 Promenade Sir William Osler) closed until further notice (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. A safety perimeter has been set up around the Hosmer House.

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.

Closure of 3690 Peel Lot until further notice

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 beam installation in McIntyre garage until further notice

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 have been blocked with construction fencing until further notice. This is necessary for a structural inspection.

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.
