Guy St. entrance of metro off limits for the summer

The Guy Street entrance of the Guy-Concordia metro station will be closed for the summer while the MTC proceeds with major renovations.

The work begins today and lasts through to August 25 when the entrance should re-open.

Commuters will be able to use the Saint-Mathieu entrance in the meantime.  This entrance went through the same work in 2012 during the first phase of the project.

The work at the Guy entrance will take place in three phases:

-between May 20 and July 14, the concrete slab will be repaired -between July 15 and August 24, the windows, pivoting doors and floors will be repaired and replaced. During this time, Concordia staff and students will be able to access the university  via the Engineering, Computer Science and Visual Arts Integrated Complex (EV Building) from the train platform but the Guy entrance will remain closed. -between August 25 and December, the staircases, lighting system and walls will be repaired and replaced. The Guy entrance should be re-opened on August 25.

Guy-Concordia ranks third among the busiest metro stations, with over 8 million passengers travelling through the station last year.

    Yet none of that work is going into fixing the actual station itself. The platform is a mold-infested bare-piped nightmare that reeks of humidity, decomposition and rusting pipes. You can SEE running water flow down the walls of that station.
