City of Montreal project at McTavish Reservoir: Summer 2020 until further notice

The City of Montreal has started a major construction project at the McTavish Reservoir on June 29, 2020. The project will last several years. For more information on the planned work and a map of the construction areas, please click here.

Access to McGill buildings will be maintained at all times for pedestrians, emergency vehicles, waste pickup, deliveries and reduced-mobility users. Portions of sidewalks may be closed at times, but pedestrians and reduced-mobility users will be redirected through temporary corridors as needed.

The following streets will be closed to vehicle traffic beginning June 29, 2020, until further notice. Detour signage has been installed to redirect drivers.

  • Doctor-Penfield Ave., between Peel St. and Pine Ave. (except for local traffic)
  • One lane on Pine Ave. will be used for eastbound traffic, between Peel St. and Doctor-Penfield Ave.
  • McTavish St., between Doctor-Penfield and Pine Ave. (except for local traffic)

The 107 and 144 STM bus routes will be modified as indicated on this map.

The University will work closely with the City of Montreal throughout the project to minimize disruptions to the McGill community and to keep students, faculty and staff informed.

Closure of McIntyre garage: Summer 2018 to 2020

The McIntyre garage was closed on September 17, 2018 for a major renovation project. It will remain closed for a period of approximately 2 years.

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.

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.
