Second advanced sign for the Autoroute 40/440 interchange.  Autoroute 40 is signed with Autoroute 440 at this interchange as Autoroute 40 was initially supposed to be completed on a new northerly alignment along the southern boundary of Jean-Lesage International Airport.  Given today's urban realities, it seems unlikely that the once proposed Autoroute 40 by-pass will ever be completed.
