As we reported earlier this month, Côte-Vertu Metro will go through extensive work this year, with closures starting as early as this weekend.\nThere are, in fact, three designated weekends that the STM plans to close the entire station to prepare for its more extensive, 11-week construction project planned for this summer.\nThis coming weekend is the first closure of the entire Côte-Vertu Metro station, with two more full-weekend closures planned for April.\nREAD ALSO: Montreal Is Getting An Ice Storm This Weekend, Quebec Is Getting A Snow Storm\nTL;DR Côte-Vertu Metro station will be closed all weekend as part of a planned closure to replace electrical wiring between the station and the construction site established to build the underground garage being built over 11 weeks this summer.\nView this post on Instagram 49 of 68 - Done with this side of the orange.

The extra space for trains would also allow for the increase in trains needed to expand the blue line.\nAs mentioned above, we will keep you updated on the closures at this and any metro stations in the future.
