The pont Mirabeau in Paris was built between 1895 and 1897. It was listed a historical monument in 1975.
The bridge spans the Seine from the 15th arrondissement (left bank), to the 16th arrondissement. It links rue de la Convention and place Mirabeau, on the left bank, to rue de Rémusat. On the left side, upstream, is the gare de Javel of the RER, line C. The bridge is served by the Paris Metro stations Mirabeau and Javel - André Citroën.
The decision to create a new bridge to the right of the junction created by avenue de Versailles and rue Mirabeau was taken by the French President Sadi Carnot on 12 January 1893. The bridge was designed by the engineer Paul Rabel, responsible for the bridges of Paris, assisted by the engineers Jean Résal and Amédée d'Alby, and built by Daydé & Pillé.
The principal arch has a span of 93 meters, and the two lateral arches 32,4 m. The one on the right bank spans the road, while the one of the left bank spans the quay and extends the link over the RER railway. At the time of its construction, this was the longest and highest bridge in Paris. The bridge is 173 meters long, 20 m. wide (the roadway measures 12 m., and the two pavements 4 m. each).

  • What most highlight in the beauty of this bridge are the four figures on the pillars that are in the river, but also the material used (steel), proves that it is a robust bridge. It has two road traffic routes in each direction. It was built between 1893 and 1896.

  • I no longer count the times when I had the opportunity to cross this bridge, either from the top, or under the Seine by subway. A few dozen meters separated him from my old dwelling when I settled in Paris, and I remember the emotion that my get the first sunset from this bridge. Just magical! One recognizes the very 19th century style, although with an additional hint of modernity with its longilinear shape it gives it a very pleasing aesthetic, and I suppose it was built in view of the universal exposition of 1900, in full frenzy Paris. Fantastic sunrises and sunsets, with a perfectly clear view of the relatively close Eiffel Tower, and the small statue of liberty that welcomes the boats and reminds us that the giant is coming from our home.
