Composite: Crossing Jacques Cartier Bridge


Crossing the Jacques Cariter Bridge

The one time I had formerly been across the Jacques Cartier bridge, as far as Ile Ste. Hélène, was back in 1992. The sidewalk back then had been narrow and in terrible shape, with large gaping holes where one could see right down to the river below. (Much like the east side sidewalk remains today.) I had read, though, in the newspaer, that all was new! When I passed in 2003, I found that indeed the new roadbed was wide enough for two cyclists to pass quite easily. I started up the bridge, stopping often to take photos. I took photos down each major street.

I returned twice to the Jacques Cartier Bridge in 2004: Once outbound, on my way to explore the Chambly Trail, and once inbound, returning from my second ride along the South Shore Bike Trail.
