The two pylons, each lifting a single cable on a saddle, supports the superstructure at midspan. The tower does not continue below the deck (similar to the Millau Viaduct) and the prestressed box girder superstructure is supported by bearings and a pier wall.
The bridge is 725 ft long with a main span of 350 ft. The tower is 70 ft high and the deck has a variable width between 70 to 114 ft. More information about this bridge (in German) is available from Wikipedia.
