Notes
  • GHD: "...asymmetrical bridge supported by a single pier."
  • Ile aux Barques is now known as Ile Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
  • This location is better known for the large underspanned suspension bridge completed in 1834 by Dufour (documented in great detail in reference GHD). I have, thus far, omitted the underspanned bridge from the inventory. This entry is for the small footbridge that connected to the larger underspanned bridge. Follow the image link for more information.
