The upstream pavement of the existing bridge is turned into a cycle lane. Accessibility to both underpasses is improved.
A single pier stands to the right of Île Rousseau. The anchor on the left bank fits into the embankment and bears tensile loads. The short span on the right bank allows light support. The asymmetric spans allow clearance for shipping and the floating barge. The very slender structure comprises an asymmetric metal caisson of variable height (2.05 m to 3.65 m) with a longest span of 162 m and a shortest of 90 m. A bench widening according to the geometry of the beam completes the footbridge.
