The work includes adding three elevators to improve accessibility, waterproofing the station’s underground roof, replacing the station’s ambient lighting, and demolishing and rebuilding slabs and staircases, STM officials said in a press release.

The agency’s board has awarded a $19 million contract to Groupe Decarel Inc. for the project, which is expected to wrap up in December 2017, STM officials said.

The station, which is the eastern terminus of STM’s Green Line, was opened in 1976 and currently serves 5.3 million customers annually.

STM is advancing a plan to improve accessibility at 12 stations, including Honore-Beaugrand, by 2017.
