ddl49: trop loin pour faire les maintenance et peu de visite. En espérant qu'un geocacheur local prendra le relais.

Geocache Description:


Ce pont fut reconstruit en 1926 mais il s'écroula le 12 avril 1935. Il semble que l'effondrement fut dû à des malfaçons lors du coulage des culées en béton.
Il est reconstruit en 1938 mais le génie militaire français le fait sauter le 19 juin 1940 pour retarder l'avance des troupes allemandes.
En 3 mois l'organisation Todt construit un pont de bois parrallèle au pont détruit, 1000 hommes y ont travaillé.
Le 7 juin 1944, l'aviation américaine bombarde le pont et une partie de la ville. Finalement le pont est reconstruit de 1948 à 1949 dans l'état où nous le connaissons aujourd'hui..

This bridge was rebuilt in 1926 but it collapsed April 12, 1935. It seems that the collapse was caused by poor workmanship during the pouring of concrete abutments.
It was rebuilt in 1938 but the French military engineers detonated June 19, 1940 to delay the advance of German troops.
In 3 months the organization Todt built a wooden bridge parallell to the bridge destroyed, 1000 people worked there.
On June 7, 1944, U.S. aircraft bombed the bridge and part of the city. Finally the bridge is rebuilt from 1948 to 1949 in the state we know today.

Bonne chance à toutes et à tous - Good luck everybody!
