|September 2016 (45.7506, 4.8211) Viaduc la Quarantaine|
Lyon Bridge Blog correctly it seems the city felt the previous bridge was an eyesore and ordered this replacement structure, which was completed in 1932. Although most bridges had Art Deco details in the 1930s, this bridge seems to have been influenced by 'Orientalism' with curlicues supporting the deck overhang and with a pointed arch.
The Viaduc Quarantaine is in good shape and its an attractive bridge. I'm not sure why it's called 'Quarantaine,' which means quarantine in English. Maybe this area was quarantined at some point?
