Construction Update 

Magnifying glass

As many Journal readers may have noticed, the tunnel project linking the GM building to the LB and Hall buildings is currently underway along De Maisonneuve Blvd. A project of this magnitude often requires heavy construction, resulting in noise disruptions to those working and living in the area.
Concordia Facilities Manage-ment would like to inform community members that while there will still be noise due to the ongoing construction until the end of 2009, major noise disruptions due to pile driving will be completed by early April. The project is on schedule and within budget, and is planned to open by the end of 2009.

Work is generally done between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., though construction is allowed by city regulations to continue until 7 p.m.

To ensure the safety of pedestrians, Facilities Management is asking your cooperation in respecting the directional signage and using the pedestrian passage at the Mackay crossing. This passage has been created to ensure people do not put their lives in danger by walking in vehicle lanes.

Facilities Management will keep you updated in regard to the status of the project. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to get in contact with Director Tony Vanvari at
