Pont de la Caille


New contributor Eric Garnier brings us this excellent drone video of a historic bridge in the French Alps region.  Variously known as the Caille Bridge and the Charles-Albert Bridge, it crosses a gorge of the Usses River separating the communes of Allonzier-la-Caille and Cruseilles in the department of Haute-Savoie.  The 630 ft. (192 m) steel suspension bridge was completed in 1839.   Since 1928, it's been complemented by a second bridge, also seen in the video: the Caquot Bridge or the New Bridge (Pont Neuf), a concrete arch structure.
