The work to refurbish the waterproof membrane will begin Monday.
The block of Jean Talon St. between St-Denis and St-Vallier Sts. will be closed for several months so crews can conduct work on the Jean-Talon métro station.
The work to refurbish the waterproof membrane — which acts as barrier to keep water out of the station from the street above it — will begin Monday (April 1), the Société de transport de Montréal said in an advisory on its stm.info site. The advisory did not specify a particular date when the work will be completed, only that it will wrap up in the summer.
Car traffic will be detoured for the length of the closure, but there will be a walkway for pedestrians. The station will remain open and trains will continue to make stops, though the St-Denis St. doors will be off limits, requiring users to enter at Berri St.
After Jean-Talon is reopened, St-Vallier St. will remain closed until the end of the year so crews can repair a foundation wall in the station.
Crews are also working to build an elevator in that station that would service the Blue Line that is slated to open this summer.
