It’s the oldest thoroughfare dating from the time of New France. In the early 18th century, workers crushed piles of rocks to create the first road connecting the city of Québec and Montréal, over 280 km. The route runs through heritage sites as well as recent attractions, such as vineyards.
Route 138 runs along much of the Chemin du Roy, which starts from Repentigny, east of Montréal, and goes towards the city of Québec. Enjoy the trip by car or motorcycle or on bike.
