This bridge towers over part of the city. You can actually see it from many parts of town. And it carries a lot of traffic. We crossed it. But it is not all that pretty, and there are regular traffic jams.

Lot of bridges here in Montreal, beautiful and not the easiest to maneuver but worth the effort. Enjoyed

Spectacular light show at night. My wife and I passed by whilst touring East Canada and enjoyed the sights provided.

This should be the world's networked bridge. It connected the city on the island to the mainland. Particularly impressive at night time with illumination lights on. Better view as viewed at a distance. We took a few on board of the cruise ship.

The bridge offer a nice view from Montreal Old Port. The view isn't much when you are on the bridge (walk, bike or car). The view is much better when you are NOT on the bridge but watching it from distance.

I have fear of heights and on a recent trip, I needed to drive over this bridge to enter and exit Montreal. It was kind of a scary experience. The only thing I can do to overcome it is to stay as left as possible so that I don't have to see how high we were in the sky (I already knew how high the bridge is when I drove close to it).

This is a bridge which connects the city to the mainland (the city being on an island). It isn't particularly spectacular to look at, but it is an important way to get to and from the city. It's not something to make a special effort to experience, but if you want to see it, it is visible from many places in the city.

Wouldn't make it a must see in town, but if you're around go check look. If the day is clear, you'll have great pics.

Loved this bridge - we watched the fireworks over it from a boat on the St Lawrence river. The bridge cost $30 million to build back in the 1930s, then they spent $40 million fitting it with the most extraordinary lighting system in 2017! Made a fabulous backdrop to the firework display.

An impressive and per chance even iconic bridge which links the St Helens offshore island. Well worth seeing and a fairly pleasant trip to get there to boot.

Characterfully designed which complements the whole area.
