from Tourisme Montréal:

''Inaugurated as the Harbor Bridge in 1931, this link between Longueuil and Montréal was rebaptized the Jacques Cartier Bridge three years later in honour of the French explorer and cartographer, and first European to map the St. Lawrence River.

Come dusk, you can see the city's energy expressed through an intricate system of LED lights pulsing across its delicate, web-like structure. The data used to create these luminous choreographies is culled from numerous sources, including traffic, weather, news and social media. The bridge's illumination also changes with the seasons: energizing green in spring, bright yellow in summer, rich red in fall and icy blue in winter.''
