Built in 1970, the existing reinforced concrete structure consists of
two 2-span concrete bridges. They were designed as prestressed girder bridges. The superstructures are supported by two abutments and a central pier. All supports have deep foundations. Due to the girder’s lack of torsional stiffness, they are connected in the middle of the bridge by a massive central cross girder.
