That’s right, there is a new bridge of 453 m in Portage-du-Fort, in the Pontiac sector of Outaouais region.
The Pontiac Snowmobile Drivers Association and VHR Outaouais have managed this issue since the beginning. An amount of 200 000 $ has been invested on the old Canadian National railway to allow snowmobilers of both shores to use this bridge for snowmobiling in Québec and Ontario.

They receive financial assistance from the FCMQ and from the Federal Government (Canada Economic Development for Québec Regions), for a total investment of about 200 000 $ to achieve this project.
This investment will bring significant economic benefits to both provinces, along with giving access to 33 000 kilometers of trails to Ontario visitors towards all regions of the Province of Québec.
