Impact on customer trips

Texte important

The station will remain open during the work. 

  • The drop-off area will be closed during the work so the contractor can set up the worksite. Also, because of the station’s configuration, the elevators will be built in the expanded portion of the station on the De Sève Street side.
  • On Drake Street, the sidewalk in front of the station and the reserved bus lane will be closed off.
  • Some bike racks will be relocated near the station doors.

Impact on local residents

Drake Street closed temporarily

Drake Street is closed temporarily between Holy Cross and Jolicoeur for excavation work. The street is scheduled to reopen on December 13, 2019.

Construction work that may generate noise will generally be restricted to a limited time between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. To stay on schedule, we may have to work on the weekends. If this happens, it will be done in compliance with municipal regulations. Also, some work will be completed at night as it absolutely must be done outside of métro operation hours.

Learn more about the project

Integrating elevators into a métro station involves a number of steps. Given Jolicoeur station’s current architecture and configuration, we will have to expand the entrance building on both sides to integrate the two new elevators. The red marquee will be extended, and the elevators will be located on the De Sève Street side and will connect to the mezzanine level via interior corridors. A new curtain wall, a wall made entirely of glass, will be built to preserve the station’s unique architecture.

The two existing natural ventilation shafts will be expanded, and a portion of the space for the shafts will be used to integrate the elevators, and two other ventilation shafts will be added on Jolicoeur Street.

A contest was launched in November 2018 to select an artist who will create a work of art and integrate it into the station. The winner will be announced in 2019. This work of art will be the first one in the station to be created by a professional artist: Jolicoeur station’s ceramic circles were drawn by the station’s architect, Claude Boucher.

The Accessibility program is made possible thanks to the additional funding announced by the federal and provincial governments to speed up universal accessibility work and make the 41 métro stations accessible by 2025.
