The Quebec Bridge (Pont de Québec in French) is a road, rail and pedestrian bridge across the lower Saint Lawrence River to the west of Quebec City, and Lévis, Quebec, Canada. The project failed twice, at the cost of 88 lives, and took over 30 years to complete.
The Quebec Bridge is a riveted steel truss structure and is 987 m (3,239 ft) long, 29 m (94 ft) wide, and 104 m (340 ft) high. Cantilever arms 177 m (580 ft) long support a 195 m (640 ft) central structure, for a total span of 549 m (1800 ft), still the longest cantilever bridge span in the world. (It was the all-categories longest span in the world until the Ambassador Bridge was completed in 1929.) It is the easternmost (farthest downstream) complete crossing of the Saint Lawrence.
The Quebec Bridge was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1995.
On March 17, 2007, after major renovations at a cost of 23 million started in summer 2004, the Raoul-Jobin Concert Hall is inaugurated. The acoustics of the new hall is then considered, “almost perfect”. Sound insulation to the outside reduces ambient noise to background noise of 20 dB. Through the use of various acoustic techniques, the room allows optimal control (2.2 seconds or less) of the reverb without echo. Renovations however known their share of problems, with costs almost doubled compared to the budget, a fire and a series of lawsuits that have delayed the delivery of this great concert hall.
