After several attempts at constructing bridges, finally destroyed by high water levels in the Seine, the construction of a new bridge was ordered by Louis XIV. Jules Hardouin was instructed to build a bridge in stone. The five-arch bridge was built between 1685 and 1689 using the best materials and finest stone.
Since its construction, it has only been slightly modified.
It is a listed historical monument.
