K36 Lammschlucht Gorge, Arch Bridge at the End of the Gorge

The bridge in the Lammschlucht Gorge is a sandstone arch bridge which was built in 1916. The carriageway slab was extended in 1956. Due to crack formations the arch and foundation were reinforced with steel clasps. A deep-anchored foundation with embedded steel clasps was inserted into the lower foundation.
