"Crossing the Saint Lawrence River"

The Pierre Laporte Bridge is Canada's longest suspension bridge, spanning the distance between the banks of the Saint Lawrence River. Built in 1970, the Pierre Laporte is also the world's longest non-tolled suspension bridge. Although originally intended to bear the name of Frontenac, the majestic structure was christened in honor of the Vice-Premiere Pierre Laporte who was kidnapped and killed shortly before the completion of the bridge. Just 200 meters to the west of the iconic Quebec Bridge, the Pierre Laporte is the more contemporary counterpoint to the world's longest cantilever span.
