Easterly view from the Ste-Claire Road overpass towards the western-most interchange along A-20.  The pictured R-325 overpass looks worse for wear than its actual condition since the concrete sealant that adorns the structure has been allowed to slowly flake away over the years.  The western reach of A-20 was completed in the early 1960s, predating the completion of Ontario's Highway 401 to the Quebec border

Route 325 crosses A-20 at this overpass, while Route 338 begins heading east to Montreal from this location.  Route 338 is the equivalent to Ontario's Highway 2, which before A-20 and Highway 401 was the main road between Montreal and Toronto.

Advanced signage for Exit 9.  Notice that a comma is used to show that Exit 9 is located 1.5km from this sign post.  The comma and period are reversed in French Language jurisdictions than they are in their English speaking counterparts.  Unlike the rest of Canada, in Quebec, one hundred-thousand-dollars would be written as such: $100.000,00.

View at Exit 9.  There is nothing particularly remarkable about this photo, though I always find it striking just how old everything about the Autoroute network is.  From the overpass, to the driving surface to the signage -- everything about this freeway is dated.

Westbound signage approaching the Les Cèdres interchange.  The westbound lanes of Autoroute 20 have a considerable cross-section at this point.  The extra lanes are caused by the incoming ramps from the Autoroute 30 interchange.  Autoroute 20 quickly narrows to a four lane freeway (two per direction) beyond the Les Cèdres interchange.
