Quebec outlook
« on: September 29, 2018, 07:17:54 pm »
Autoroute 720 in Montreal is being downgraded to a western QC 136. That could happen upon completion of reconstruction of the Turcot interchange with A-15/20, and part of existing A-720, which could be in 2019 or 2020.

The A-720 route file could use some recentering and perhaps truncation (an official map, and GMSV, suggest A-720 ends short of Pont Jacques-Cartier). But I would defer most changes until A-720 becomes QC 136, after all the reconstruction is completed and QC 136 perhaps gets a new endpoint. In the meantime, I'll synch A-720's waypoint 5 with the west end of A-10, and correct A-720's east end label to RueNotDame.

There are no intersections with highways in the canqc route set, so it will be unaffected until the new QC 136 is added to the system.

Plans have been approved for a northward extension of A-25 to Sainte-Julienne. Work is scheduled to begin in 2022.

Also, modernization work on the Turcot interchange (A-15/A-20/A-720/new QC 136 segment) in Montreal is nearing completion, with the bulk of the construction to be done the rest of this year, and finish-up work continuing into 2021.

A reminder to self about a recent route change: When Autoroute 410 was extended around Drummondville in Dec. 2020, signage unveiled at the opening ceremony indicates QC 108 was rerouted onto A-410, with the old alignment (part of Rue College) east of QC 143 becoming a truck-restricted local road. While OSM reflects the change, Transports Quebec's online mapping doesn't.

Once the US-Canada border reopens to non-essential travel (not holding my breath on that), I can field-check this as part of re-clinching A-410.

^ I can potentially field-check that as well, considering I'm in a better (i.e. 90 minute drive) position to do so.
