Road Works and Access to the City Centre for Summer 2023

The City of Québec has planned the sequencing of the construction sites in order to limit the impacts as much as possible during the tourist period and ensure a good experience for visitors.

To make the most of your stay, it is recommended to get around in an eco-responsible way and to go on foot, by bike or by public transport in Old Québec. If you must use your car, we recommend parking in a public parking lot around Old Québec.

Here are some useful links to plan your trip to the city centre this summer :
