AsphaltPlanet.ca > Quebec > Autoroute 440 (Aut. Laval)

Western Terminus: A-1320 interchange in western Montreal, immediately east of Trudeau (Dorval Airport).

Eastern Terminus: A-640 interchange in Broisbriand 

Routing: A-440 begins its trek through the heart of Laval at the Autoroute 13 cloverleaf interchange.  A-440 progresses easterly crossing Autoroute des Laurentides (A-15), A-19 and Boul. Pie-IX before terminating at a brand new interchange with A-25.  While it hasn't been (and may never be) constructed, a western extension of A-440 was proposed to extend westerly from A-13 crossing Rivière des Prairies and meeting A-40 in Beaconsfield.  While such an extension is unlikely given the MTQ's preference for the completion of A-30 to by-pass Montreal, the western extension of A-440 would serve as a very useful northern alternate to Autoroute Metropolitaine through Montreal.

Westbound signage for the Route 117 interchange.  Route 117 is the principal north-south non-freeway arterial highway that leads northwesterly from Montreal.  Prior to the completion of Autoroute 15, Route 117 was the principal route into the Laurentians (Laurentides).

Overhead signage for the ramp to Autoroute 15 (Autoroute des Laurentides) from A-440 Westbound.  Autoroute 15 intersects with Autoroute 440 via a large cloverleaf interchange.  It is amazing given the importance of both Autoroute 15 and Autoroute 440 that they still intersect with one another via a cloverleaf intersection.  Numerous Autoroute junctions in the Province of Quebec are still managed with cloverleaf's.

Advanced signage for the Boulevard des Laurentides exit.  Boulevard des Laurentides is designated as Route 335 south of A-440.  Route 335 also continues north of A-440 following the future alignment of an extended A-19 between A-440 and A-640.  Before this initial stage of Autoroute 19 was constructed, Route 335 continued north of A-440 following Boulevard des Laurentides.  Presumably, once A-19 is completed north of A-440, Route 335 will be re-routed back to the Boul. des Laurentides alignment.

Signage at the eastbound off-ramp to Boul. des Laurentides.  An eastbound frontage road begins at this off-ramp, however unlike most Montreal area frontage roads, traffic must progress through the traffic signal at the ramp terminal at Boul. des Laurentides before continuing unimpeded easterly alongside A-440.

Westbound advanced sign for the Autoroute 19 interchange.  As of 2010 --when this photo was taken, and this caption was written -- Autoroute 440 marked the northern terminus of Autoroute 19.  During 2010, the Province of Quebec announced that construction would commence in 2014 to extend A-19 northerly to just north of A-640.  The new highway would be completed by 2015.
