Major Roadwork on University Street from Sept. 22 to Oct. 22

The City of Montreal is conducting major road and sidewalk upgrades on University Street, north of Pine Avenue, beginning September 22 and lasting until approximately October 22. During that time, no on-street parking will be available on this section of University Street. Visitors and staff are advised to use parking lots P1,P3 or P4 and Terrain Upper Residence (see attached map). It is advisable to be dropped off, if possible, rather than park, because parking spaces in these lots are limited.

Access to the hospital and research institute will remain open during construction. Sidewalks will be repaired on one side at a time to ensure pedestrians can always enter the hospital from University Street. Signals people will be on site to guide pedestrians and drivers on the correct path.

The Neuro will post more information as it becomes available. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Update: Major roadwork on University Street- Sunday, October 21

On Sunday, October 21, the City of Montreal will be paving University Street north of Av. des Pins from 7am to 6pm (the work may finish earlier). Pedestrian access will be maintained in the area. Traffic signalers will be present to direct vehicles and pedestrians. Priority access will be given to emergency vehicles.

Neuro entrances will remain open and accessible.

The McGill parking lots will be accessible, but only by driving through the parking areas of the former Royal Victoria Hospital (RVH) and only after 7am.

On Sunday, vehicles that are already parked should exit the MNI/Middle Field and Residences parking areas by 7am unless they intend on remaining parked until University Street is reopened later in the day.
