The construction of the bridge over the Saint Lawrence River began in 1925, and it was inaugurated in 1930. The original name of this structure was Pont du Havre, but it was later renamed the Jacques Cartier Bridge.

why the name ?- Jacques Cartier is one of the most important characters in Canada, he was the first European explorer to reach the coasts of Montreal and interact with the native tribes in the area.

the Jacques Cartier Bridge has gained a lot of international notoriety thanks to its LED lights, which were installed in 2017, as part of a modernization project. The lights, which vary in color and intensity, illuminate the route of this road passage and can be seen from both ends of the shore of the Saint Lawrence River.

We had great views of this bridge from our hotel in old Montreal. It links the islands across the river. The Jacques Cartier Bridge is an icon of Greater Montreal. Inaugurated in 1930, this five-lane bridge links Montreal to Longueuil and provides access to Île Sainte-Hélène.

This bridge towers over part of the city. You can actually see it from many parts of town. And it carries a lot of traffic. We crossed it. But it is not all that pretty, and there are regular traffic jams.

This should be the world's networked bridge. It connected the city on the island to the mainland. Particularly impressive at night time with illumination lights on. Better view as viewed at a distance. We took a few on board of the cruise ship.

The bridge offer a nice view from Montreal Old Port. The view isn't much when you are on the bridge (walk, bike or car). The view is much better when you are NOT on the bridge but watching it from distance.

I have fear of heights and on a recent trip, I needed to drive over this bridge to enter and exit Montreal. It was kind of a scary experience. The only thing I can do to overcome it is to stay as left as possible so that I don't have to see how high we were in the sky (I already knew how high the bridge is when I drove close to it).

This is a bridge which connects the city to the mainland (the city being on an island). It isn't particularly spectacular to look at, but it is an important way to get to and from the city. It's not something to make a special effort to experience, but if you want to see it, it is visible from many places in the city.

Wouldn't make it a must see in town, but if you're around go check look. If the day is clear, you'll have great pics.
