Parc national de la Jacques-Cartier

Improvement works on Chemin du Parc-National Details

News

Just 30 minutes from Québec City, you’ll fall under the spell of a vast mountainous plateau cut by deep valleys. Parc national de la Jacques-Cartier is host to one of the most beautiful glacial valleys in Québec, the spectacular Vallée de la Jacques-Cartier. The Jacques Cartier River, calm in some places and turbulent in others, has sliced a 550-metre-deep channel into the plateau. A coniferous forest dominates the high plateaus, and deciduous trees people the deep valleys. Here, nature is both inspiring and serene.

Improvement works on Chemin du Parc-National

Please note that repair work on a few sections of the main paved road, Chemin du Parc-National, is being carried out between the park entrance and the Discovery and Visitors Centre. Work will take place between May 12 and July 1, 2015.

During the work period, traffic on Chemin du Parc-National will not be interrupted.

However, on weekdays, due to a number of work sites along the road, traffic controllers or traffic lights will be needed so as to alternately direct traffic in both directions.  This will extend the trip between the park entrance and the Discovery and Visitors Centre by 20 to 30 minutes.

During weekends, there will be no obstacle on the road to the Discovery and Visitors Centre.

Thank you for your understanding.
