Route 338

Western Entrance: Ontario Border -- R-338 continues in Ontario as Highway 2.

Eastern Terminus: An at-grade intersection with Autoroute 20 in Dorion.

Regions: MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges

Routing: From Ontario, R-338 follows the northern shore the Saint Lawrence River through several small communities.  Once the highway has reached Pointe-des-Cascades (the Mouth of the Ottawa River), the highway abruptly turns northerly, before meeting and terminating at A-20 in Dorion.  Of note, R-338 is part of the original Route 2 which was the main route between not only Toronto and Montreal, but Windsor Ontario and New Brunswick.

View looking southerly towards the R-132 intersection.  I always find it interesting that Quebec doesn't use 'Vers' tabs to separate trailblazers from reassurance markers.

Four-way stop controlled intersection with 34e Avenue in Sainte-Zotique.  I really like Quebec's four-way stop signage treatment.

This sign is slightly misleading.  The Ramp to R-201 south departs after this signalized intersection.

Overhead guides signage for R-201.  Note the age of the R-201 overpass in the distance.
