The Félix-Gabriel-Marchand Bridge illumination project would have raised more than $ 145,000 to hold a sound and light show to mark the reopening of this symbol of the MRC Pontiac. According to Louis Harvey of the Phare Ouest organization, business support is very important and the contract to ensure the illumination of the bridge should be concluded in the coming days.

The reopening of the bridge could take place next July.

Erected in 1898 in the municipality of Mansfield-et-Pontefract and measuring approximately 150 meters, the Félix-Gabriel-Marchand bridge is recognized as the longest covered motorable bridge in Quebec. This bridge is unique because it was constructed from a combination of two types of trellis. It was named in honor of Félix Gabriel-Marchand, Premier of Quebec from 1897 to 1900. The renovation project is extremely complex. It consists of strengthening and straightening the structure, replacing the roof and paneling, rebuilding the deck and replacing some damaged or deficient parts.
