Map Of All The STM's Metro Stations That Are Closed For Construction

While the STM gave us some good news this Spring, with their aim for a "5-minute max" wait time for the green and orange line, our metro network is still heavily under work.

The network "improvements" can hinder our metro experience, if you will. That doesn't mean we should be ticked with the STM... they are trying to better our service, after all.

But it does help to be informed so that when you are heading out to stations unknown, you have some idea what to expect when you get there.

TL;DR The STM is hard at work across Montreal and this map shows all the planned construction and metro station upgrades that will be going on in 2019.

There areat least eight projects underway across the metro network right now. Some of these projects are simply the installation of elevators, like the work being done at Jean-Drapeau.

Other projects are much larger, like the complete refurbishment of Beaudry that has the station entirely closed.

This map, provided by the STM, shows all the work that is currently ongoing across the metro network. Unfortunately, it does not tell you to what extent the work impacts metro passengers. 

As mentioned above,Beaudry is completely closed until June 2, 2019. To know which stations are completely closed and which just have certain entrances closed, for example. When you visit the page 2019: Major projects you can click the left of the page to learn more about each station that is under construction.

Also, as noted at the bottom of the map, other stations could be added... one station that is notably missing from this map is Cote-Vertu, which we know to have work starting this month on select weekends and a full closure scheduled for 11 weeks over the summer.

The STM alsoprovides information on their other projects that don't immediately impact metro stations, but have other implications for the people of Montreal.

One project, for example, is the construction of a ventilation station for the green line, down by station Lucien L'allier. The work there has impacted on-street parking and parts of the street are blocked off to vehicle traffic, pedestrian traffic and cyclists.

Like I said above, this is less a reason to be frustrated with the STM and more an opportunity to stay informed so you know how their ongoing work may impact you as you move through the city, whether that movement is by bike, foot, metro or car.
