Formerly: Autoroute 50 roadcut #2, Grenville township, Argenteuil Co., Québec, Canada. The roadcut is exposed on both South and North side of roadway in the vicinity of km 235.

Construction of a new section of Autoroute 50 (2007-2008) exposed orange calcite veins cutting Proterozoic Grenville Orogen marble and calc-silicate rocks in a huge (~2 km long) roadcut near the village of Grenville-sur-la-Rouge. Some of the veins were in the road bed and are covered by pavement.
