Autoroute 10 (also called Bonaventure Expressway / Autoroute Bonaventure between the Ville-Marie Expressway and the Champlain Bridge in Montreal and the Eastern Townships Autoroute / Autoroute des Cantons-de-l'Est outside of Montreal) is an Autoroute in southern Quebec. It is the main route to the Eastern Townships / Estrie region of Quebec, particularly to the Sherbrooke area. A-10 is currently 147 kilometres long.

A-10 begins at the Ville-Marie Expressway as the Southbound continuation of University Street in downtown Montreal, but immediately elevates above ground. A-10 then joins Autoroute 15 and Autoroute 20 in a three-route concurrency across the Champlain Bridge, but quickly branches to its own route until it joins up with Autoroute 55 in Magog, where it continues as a concurrency until its new terminus at Autoroute 610. (A-55 continues north to Drummondville.)

The portion east of Autoroute 55 (linking that autoroute with Route 112) was renumbered as Autoroute 610 on September 29, 2006. [http://www.estrie.gouv.qc.ca/actualites/communiques/affichage_communique.asp?txtnum=15499]

Until 1985, the entire portion east of Montreal was a toll road.
