The Jacques Cartier Bridge

Having walked under the Turcot Interchange on many, many occasions I recently had a chance to compare notes with what is probably Montreal’s greatest elevated roadway – The Jacques Cartier Bridge!
Turcot always struck me as being very solid despite how scary it can look in some parts where the rebar is showing or even hanging out. But this bridge is one hell of a very solid thing and compared to Turcot it really looks almost brand new. So I have to wonder why we decided to go with concrete when steel and stone seems to be so successful?
