Jacques Cartier Bridge

An icon of the downtown Montreal area, the Jacques Cartier Bridge spans the St. Lawrence River between Longueuil and Montreal. This Route 134 bridge has become the second busiest bridge in Quebec – with 35.8 million vehicles crossing it each year. 

Some history here. In 1930, the bridge opened with three lanes of traffic and was named "Harbour Bridge." In 1934, the bridge was renamed to honor explorer Jacques Cartier.

Visit the public square at the intersection of De Lorimier and St. Catherine streets to see the commemorative plaque in honor of the bridge's 75th Anniversary. An exit ramp also leads to St. Helen’s Island below.

While at the 104-metre tall, 3.4-kilometre-long bridge, see if you can find the cornerstone laid in 1926. The cornerstone, the beginning piece of construction, is accompanied by a time capsule containing coins, photographs, city plans, newspapers, annual reports, and other items.
