The Kennedy bridge.
Part of the lighting plan of the city of Liege.
I will speak later.

History of this bridge ...

Then called the Boverie Bridge or Pont Neuf, the Pont Kennedy certainly history's most turbulent bridges Liege ...
Completed in 1837 after three years of construction, one of its arches collapsed barely six months after its opening. The structure is demolished to be rebuilt in 1843. The new bridge is very simple, simple but certainly solid and it is just before blowing its hundred candles will be blown up in 1940.

A third version, provisional latter is set up in 1946 to succeed him ... the fourth and final version of The Bridge Boverie in 1958, opened in 1960. Based on its four supports including two batteries in Meuse, the bridge will undergo its final episode in 1963: it will change its name and was renamed the Pont Kennedy following the assassination of the President of the United States of America John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

It remains a fairly busy bridge with a daily passage of approximately 15,000 vehicles.
