Train to Versailles

I am planning a trip to Paris in September 2022. I have tickets to Versailles on 9/17 and have been planning on taking the RER C from St Michel-Notre Dame. I have found that the St Michel- Notre dame station is closed for construction. So in august the RATP app is routing from Cluny-La Sorbonne to Javel to Versailles Rive Gauche. However starting in September the RATP app, is showing that this option is not available and that I will have to take two trains and a bus ( 1 hour, 15). Does anybody know
what is going on? Do I have any other options?

You can also route yourself via google maps as well as citymapper, maybe when you get closer to the date it will change. There's been construction on RERC if I'm not mistaken.

The train from Saint Lazare to Versailles Rive Droite is the L line. You can also get it at La Defense.
Here is the map of the L line. I like it for the views of the Eiffel Tower looking east into the city.

There is also train from Gare Montparnasse (Line N). If for some crazy reason, the RER C, Line N and Line L (the line from St Lazare) are all out of service, you can also take a bus (currently route 171) from the Pont de Sevres stop on Line 9.

The alternatives have been listed for you.
I am.not finding any indication of a closure of the C line to Versailles on 17 sep (only between Austerlitz and Invalides, so the route via Javel would still work), so I suggest you try the routing app a week or so before your trip. The routing module might not be able to plan the route this far in the future.
