Louis Bisson Bridge spans the Rivière des Prairies between the eastern tip of Montreal's Pierrefonds-Roxboro borough and the district of Chomedey in Laval, Quebec, Canada. It carries 7 lanes of Quebec Autoroute 13, including one reversible lane at the center. That lane is an example of a permanent zipper lane.

The bridge was named after Canadian aviator Louis Bisson.
