I wouldn't go out of the way to see this, but if you're nearby go check out this quaint covered bridge.

Pont de Prud’homme is a covered bridge made of wood in the Québec municipality of Brébeuf. Built in 1918 in only six weeks at a cost of $6,000, the elaborate structure, built in the “Town Québécois” type of architecture, is approximately 44 metres long and actively carries a single lane of Chemin du Pont Prud’homme across the Rivière du Diable. The first vehicle to pass over the single-span bridge belonged to Harmel Perreault. Fun fact: Wooden bridges are almost always covered to help protect their vulnerable decks from the elements. Originally built under the supervision of Bernadin Durocher of Ville-Marie, the bridge was repaired and painted red (it was originally green and white) in 1997 at a cost of $40,000. It has 2.1 metres of clearance and can accommodate vehicles weighing up to five tonnes. Pont de Prud’homme is a historic bridge (over a century old) and is named in honour of one of the municipality’s pioneer families (the family’s descendants still live near the bridge). It was originally called “Bridge of the Armistice” and then “David Bridge” until 1957 when it was re-baptized under the Duplessis mandate. The openings in the bridge’s horizontal paneling help ventilate the bridge and allow travelers to see out. The openings also help horses from becoming fearful as they pass through the long, dark, and noisy corridor. There is a parking lot next to the bridge with concrete tables and benches. There is also a nearby ramp for launching canoes and kayaks into the river.
