Autoroute Robert-Bourassa begins at Boulevard Wilfrid-Laurier and extends northward to Loretteville, where it becomes Boulevard Robert-Bourassa. 

Once named Autoroute du Vallon, this major thoroughfare was renamed Autoroute and Boulevard Robert-Bourassa in 2006, on the tenth anniversary of his death. Robert Bourassa was Premier of Quebec from 1970 to 1976 and from 1985 to 1994.
