The Jacques Cartier Bridge

Culture, arts and heritage Leisure activities Architecture Outdoor Parc Jean-Drapeau

It’s safe to say that the Jacques Cartier Bridge is no ordinary bridge: in 2017, it became the world’s first “connected” bridge, when it was outfitted with a cutting-edge lighting system that moves to Montréal’s own dynamic beat. Come dusk, you can see the city’s energy expressed through an intricate system of LED lights pulsing across its delicate, web-like structure. Inaugurated as the Harbour Bridge in 1931, this link between Longueuil and Montréal was rebaptized the Jacques Cartier Bridge three years later in honour of the French explorer and cartographer, and first European to map the St. Lawrence River.
