Summer 2021: Major Roadworks on Pierre-Laporte Bridge
Due to major roadworks in the Pierre-Laporte Bridge area, we recommend to allow more time than usual to get to Québec City by car. For a trip between Montréal and Québec City, highway 40 is a better option. You can also travel trouble-free by train or bus. Please refer to the Ministère des Transports Québec 511 website for more information on the road conditions.
