Autoroute 640-Montreal

About the land being too developed for 415, they could have put it underground to protect developed areas. Isn't this what QC did with A-10 in Montreal when they removed the elevated part of the Autoroute in the harborfront region?

Nope.  Anyone traveling from A-10 to former A-720 must travel through traffic lights on surface streets.

How was that ever allowed to be a part of any A-road in Quebec?

froggie:
^ Though discouraged, I don't think there's a hard and fast requirement that Quebec Autoroutes are fully controlled access.  Besides A-10 near downtown, there's also A-19 elsewhere in Montreal and A-573 near Quebec (City) that both have at-grade traffic signals.

vdeane:
A-10 was truncated and no longer exists west of Rue Wellington.  And prior to that it ended at Rue Notre-Dame, not A-720.

And yes, there are numerous sections of Autoroute with at-grades (A-30, A-55, and A-955 are other notable examples, but there are still more).  Meanwhile, A-720 was downgraded to QC 136 simply because a section narrowed the lanes by 1'.
