Happy 375th Montréal – Jacques-Cartier Bridge Lights Up
Montreal’s exact birthday falls on May 17 and marks the day that the city’s Jacques-Cartier Bridge will be lit in celebration of the special occasion. Thousands of LED lights will illuminate the bridge in this multi-million-dollar project that will provide quite the show – each month, the bridge will display a different colour, and the design of lights can be instantly changed to reflect things such as the weather, special holidays, and big sports wins. The Jacques Cartier Bridge is an emblem of the Greater Montreal area because of its history and unique architecture. One of the great engineering feats of the 20th century, the bridge is used every day by thousands of people to cross the Saint Lawrence River.
