Starting Monday, June 6, the Technical Services team will begin a major project to refurbish the pavement of the underground parking lot below Pavilion K at the Jewish General Hospital. For approximately eight weeks, level S6 of the lot will be closed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. However, level S5 will remain open.
This work will include the removal of the old surface and the installation of a new one on S6, as well as the installation of new speed bumps.
As soon as all of the parking spots on level S5 are occupied, the entrance to the parking lot on Bourret Avenue will be closed. Security staff will direct vehicles to temporary lots. Patients, family members, visitors, people with reduced mobility, employees (on both the day and night shifts) and others will be able to use the following:
the General Parking lot, accessible from Lavoie Street and Côte-Sainte-Catherine Road
the parking lot of Pavilion B, accessible from Côte-Sainte-Catherine Road
the parking lots of Pavilions A and H, accessible from Côte-des-Neiges Road
the contractors’ parking lot behind Pavilion A, accessible from Côte-des-Neiges Road
Parking attendants and signs will help to direct users to the lots listed above. Attendants will also be on hand to assist users with parking and to offer valet parking at no extra charge. Users will be able to pay their parking fee with the pay-and-display machines in the various lots. The attendants will also answer questions and assist users as needed.
In addition, level S6 will be closed at night. Any employees who are affected will have to leave their cars in the General Parking lot while this project is under way.
Once cars have been parked in the General lot, users will have to walk to the hospital. Thus, it may take longer than usual to get to an appointment or to work. Please budget your time accordingly. To assist those with reduced mobility, four parking spots will be reserved in the lots of Pavilions A and B, and will be supervised by attendants.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during construction.
