66. A local municipality has jurisdiction over public roads that are not under the authority of the Government of Québec or the Government of Canada or one of their departments or bodies.
A local municipality may however enter into an agreement with the department or body managing the public roads over which it does not have jurisdiction to see to the maintenance and repair of those in its territory. The municipality is authorized for that purpose to enter into an agreement with any person on the sharing of the cost of the work or the work itself.
In this Act, a public road includes any highway, road, street, lane, square, bridge, footpath or bicycle path, sidewalk or other road that is not in the private domain, and all the works or installations, including a ditch, needed for its improvement, operation or management.
