Levis - Quebec City Bridges and Marina view

Why Travel between Montreal and Quebec City

There are two routes between the cities, the North Shore via Trois Riviere, and the South Shore via Victoriaville (which is the official Trans-Canada route). This route connects the largest harbour city on Canada’s east coast with the heart and soul of Quebec’s culture and identity, moving along the shore of the St Lawrence River, that connects the Atlantic with the Great Lakes.

Here is the itinerary for the 246 km along Highway #40 & #20 between Montreal and Quebec City-Levis

Rafting on the Lachine Rapids

In Montreal, the major highways (“Autoroutes”) are often below grade and flanked by service roads on both sides, with steep ramps off the highway and back on. MAJOR INTERCHANGES will be marked in red in this table. LANGUAGE NOTE: the West Island of Montreal has a strong English population, while areas east of Mount Royal are predominantly French-speaking.

The major impetus for building the Trans-Canada in Montreal was the consideration for both city commuters and the desire to get visitors from across Canada to Expo 67, the world’s fair held during Canada’s Centennial year (in parallel with the expansion of the “Metro” subway system). Montreal was a major centre for industry and trans-Atlantic transportation, because of its strategic location on the St Lawrence River. This created challenges both building the highway and bridging the river, all without affecting shipping, the city’s network of surface railway lines, or its underground Metro system.
Montreal's Old Town
Montreal is criss-crossed by The north-south Autoroute 15 in the Island’s west and the 25 in the east, and the east-west 40 bisecting Montreal and continuing along the North Shore of the St Lawrence to Quebec City, while the 20 connects Ontario’s 401 to the south side of the Island, into almost-downtown, and zipping across the St Lawrence on the Champlain Bridge to the South Shore city of Longueil (pronounced “long-GAY”) before turning eastward toward Levis/Quebec City.

The East-west Autoroute Metropolitaine (#40) , and the north-south Boulevard Decarie (#15), and the north-south Hippolyte-Lafontaine (#25) were built mostly in a below-grade trench. The Hippolyte-Lafontaine Bridge Tunnel across the St Lawrence tunneled below Montreal’s rail lines and the St Lawrence shipping channel with a tunnel built from seven 100-metre-long pre-fabricated sections. From the mid-river Ile Charron, the Trans-Canada crosses a bridge over the south channel, the #20 AutoRoute, and rail tracks along the South Shore.

The Trans-Canada between Montreal and Quebec travels through scenic rural farmland. A short distance east of Montreal, the highway crosses the Richelieu River, which drains Lake Champlain into the St Lawrence. Recently some Americans tried designating this lake as one of the Great Lake, but were thwarted. This route was used frequently by raiding parties in both directions during the French-Indian Wars (1750s), the American Revolution, and the War of 1812.

Quebec City's Old Town

The South Shore route of the Trans-Canada Highway passes through Levis, across the St Lawrence from Quebec City, the mighty fortress city built upon rocks high above the river. You should visit Quebec City on at least one leg of your cross-country trip. It is stunning, has very charming architecture, and is historically relevant to Canada’s current political situation.

Driving Notes

Exit #80, marks the major interchange with Autoroute #40 & #25. East-west #40 intersects with north-south #25. West and south directions from the Trans-Canada Highway. Eastbound travellers should stay in right-hand lane of AutoRoute 40, westbound travellers should stay in LEFT-hand lane of AutoRoute 25

During COVID-19 Isolation, beginning in March 2020, AutoRoute 30 to the south of Montreal has gone toll-free, both to reduce interactions for toll-booth workers, but also to encourage truck and car traffic to go around Montreal.
