The Portage Bridge (French: Pont du Portage) crosses the Ottawa River just down-river from the Chaudière Bridge, joining the communities of Gatineau, Quebec and Ottawa, Ontario. It links Laurier Street and Alexandre-Taché Boulevard in the Hull sector of Gatineau and Wellington Street at the Garden of the Provinces and Territories in Ottawa, crossing Victoria Island on the way.
|Carries||6 lanes of Boulevard Masioneuve, cyclists, and pedestrians|
|Official name||Portage Bridge (Pont du Portage)|
The bridge was built by the National Capital Commission and opened in 1973. The bridge is named after the historic Portage Trail around the Chaudière Falls and Rapids which ended near the present location of the bridge.
On March 30, 2019, construction work began which includes improving safety of the bidirectional cycle track, adjustment to the motor vehicle lanes to accommodate the cycle track, repairs to the drains and the bridge expansion joints, and the asphalt surface of the bridge's northbound HOV lane.
