That exit there is signed as leading to an airport.

The blue bridge railings is something you'd see in Spain or France.

In fact the first though I had was "seems familiar"... but I'm not used with those shoulders and the end of the lane

The architect's rendering didn't have them blue


and here's a wider view so you can see where it's at (there's a body of water visible, however faintly, in this pic):

This stretch of "Voie Express" was built across a s.c. "sensitive" hillside that separates an urban area (above) and an wet area around a river bed (below).

Innovative solutions were found to contain the environmental impact of a highway in this location.

A view uphill, shot toward the end of the construction phase:


Hint: the river below this hill flows into a large body of water (which is also visible in the distance on this view).

Congrats, Chris!!

Some info about how they built it, especially the concrete scales imitating a rocky cliff.
