I've noticed that pedestrian bridges across the Seine are provided with a wooden deck. They don't seem to age very well and this one seems to have become waterlogged and it's growing grasses along its edges. I wonder why a rubber or asphalt surface isn't used for the deck?
This bridge has none of the elegance of the nearby Pont Alexander III even though it was designed by the same engineer. Perhaps it suffered from its move upstream after the World's Fair. Still it appears to be a very popular bridge with attractive views for pedestrians crossing the Seine.
