Rue du Tracel is a beautiful residential street in the form of a large crescent off Rue Saint-Félix in Cap-Rouge, within sight of the famous trestle railway bridge after which it is named.

This street is named after the large train trestle (tracel in French) bridge that spans the Cap-Rouge River valley at the entrance of the Plage Jacques-Cartier.
