Quebec
, Canada
Canada
. Construction of the A-30 dates back to the early days of autoroute construction in the 1960s. Originally called Highway 3, the A-30 was designed to replace Route 132 as the main artery linking the communities along the South Shore of the St. Lawrence River . The A-30 was originally intended to begin at the U.S. border at Dundee and end at Saint-Pierre-les-Becquets (in Centre-du-Québec ). In the late 1970s an eight-year moratorium on new autoroute construction (in favour of public transport ) by the Parti Québécois
Parti Québécois
prevented implementation of this plan. The original section of Autoroute 30 in 1968 linked Sorel-Tracy to Route 116 . The A-30 was extended to an interchange with Autoroute 10 in Brossard by 1985 and to Autoroute 15 in Candiac by 1996. Growing road congestion in and around Montreal
Montreal
led to the announcement in 2006 of a federal -provincial partnership to complete A-30 as southwestern bypass ring road . At that time, the section from Châteauguay to Vaudreuil-Dorion

These settlers mostly came from Boucherville . Soon residents, finding the Sainte-Anne-de-Varennes parish too far away, asked to establish their own parish in 1843. In 1850 they received authorization and built a church on land belonging to Julie Gauthier dite St-Germain, who asked that the name of the patron Sainte-Julie be given to the parish after Julia of Corsica , a virgin martyr from the fifth century A.D. On May 6, 1851, a civil proclamation recognized the parish municipality of Sainte-Julie.
