Route description

From Saint-Pierre-les-Becquets to its junction with Autoroute 20, it runs southeasterly (except from a brief northeastern-bound concurrency with Route 226) until it reaches the Bécancour River, which it follows West on its North shore until Lyster, where it shares a concurrency with Route 116. From there it turns northeasterly toward a concurrency with Route 271 in Sainte-Agathe-de-Lotbinière and its junction with Route 269 between Saint-Patrice-de-Beaurivage and Saint-Gilles, with both routes following the Beaurivage River downstream before separating at Saint-Gilles, where Route 218 crosses the river toward Saint-Lambert-de-Lauzon, where it crosses the Chaudière River. From there it goes to very join briefly the lengthy concurrency between Routes 273 and Route 175 before Route 273 separate, leaving the two others going Northeast to cross the Etchemin River in Saint-Henri-de-Lévis, where Route 175 goes Northwest while Route 218 goes Southeast for a 1 km concurrency with Route 277. Finally, it goes again northeasterly, roughly following the Boyer River toward Saint-Charles-de-Bellechasse and its terminus just south of Autoroute 20.
