Autoroute 410 (or A-410) is a short urban multilane highway in Sherbrooke, Quebec. It is currently a branch from Autoroute 10 (Autoroute des Cantons-de-l'Est) to the Université de Sherbrooke district. Its future terminus will be east of Lennoxville.

Autoroute 410 is 5.4 km (3.4 mi) in length. The initial segment was opened from A-10 to Boulevard Bourque (Route 112) in 1971 as a two-lane freeway. The route was opened to Boulevard de l'Université in 1978, and the entire A-410 became a 4-lane divided highway in 1981.

In March 2007, A-410 was renamed after Jacques O'Bready, the former mayor of Sherbrooke and president of the Commission municipale du Québec.

In May 2009, work started on Phase 1 of the A-410 extension to Lennoxville. An interchange will be built over Boulevard de l'Université, another over Belvédère Street, south of Mont-Bellevue and the last one at R-108/R-143 south of Lennoxville. The project is expected to be completed in 2014.[3]

Phase 2 will bypass Lennoxville, with a bridge built over the Massawippi river and culminating at R-108 near Glenday Road, Alexander Galt Regional High School and the Dairy and Swine Research and Development Centre.[4] This phase will complete the southern bypass road for Sherbrooke, mirroring the role of A-610 as northern bypass.
