Pie IX BridgeEdit profile
The Pie IX Bridge is a Quebec bridge, spanning the Rivière des Prairies. It connects the Saint-Vincent-de-Paul area of Laval, on Île Jésus, and the borough of Montreal North in Montreal, on the Island of Montreal. The bridge is part of Autoroute 25 until the construction of a new toll bridge which would connect the two branches of A-25 instead of being part of a multiplex with Autoroute 40 until Pie-IX Boulevard. While the official name is Le Caron Bridge, after Joseph Le Caron, an early missionary to the Hurons ; the bridge is most commonly called the Pie IX Bridge, after Pie-IX Boulevard. The Boulevard itself was named after Pope Pius IX (Pie is the French name for Pius).
