Completion of Highway 30

Ministère des Transports de la Mobilité durable et de l’Électrification des transports

Opened in 1968, the first section of Highway 30 was intended to link the industrial municipalities located on the south shore of Quebec between Valleyfield and Bécancour. Completing the two missing sections of this major highway created an alternative route south of Montreal, thereby reducing congestion in the metropolitan area.
