This example of a “Rue DÉTOUR” is at the corner of Chemin des Quatre-Bourgeois and Route de l’Église in Sainte-Foy. “Hey! Turn left. No, go right. Straight ahead just wasn’t a good idea!”

One of the most popular street names in Quebec City these days is DÉTOUR. With all the roadwork going on everywhere in town this summer, it can be difficult to reach your destination as planned. Commuters who took one route to drive to their office in the morning may discover they have to take a different route to get home.
