Road Cycling Highlight
The Untermainbrücke is a road bridge over the Main in Frankfurt / M. It connects the city center with Sachsenhausen and was built from 1872 to 1874. Since 1896, a horse-drawn carriage has been driving the Untermain Bridge, which was electrified as one of Frankfurt's first tram lines in 1899. In 1933 the bridge was renamed Adolf-Hitler-Brücke. On March 26, 1945, three of the current arcs were blasted together with the other Main bridges by a blasting operation of the Wehrmacht. At the end of 1945, a makeshift wood-and-steel construction was placed on the largely undamaged pillars in order to at least make the bridge, which was now renamed, usable for pedestrian traffic. In June 1948, reconstruction began. In 1984, the tram operation was discontinued via the bridge. In 1989/90, the bridge had to be completely renewed due to the structural damage that had occurred in the meantime. The entire bridge girder was removed and rebuilt.Type: steel / concrete / composite beam bridge
