Avenue Dalton on an overcast day. It's one of the longest streets in Parc industriel Colbert with a variety of successful manufacturing businesses, judging from the heavy traffic of large trucks.

Avenue Dalton is located in an industrial park tucked between Autoroutes Henri-IV and Robert-Bourassa, Boulevard Charest and Boulevard Versant-Nord.

Avenue Dalton is named for John Dalton (1766 -1844), a British chemist, meteorologist and physicist, who is best known for his pioneering work in the development of modern atomic theory.
