The General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways (GDDKiA) Branch in Bydgoszcz commissioned the repair of the bridge over the Vistula River in the Fordon District in Bydgoszcz. The bridge built in 1893 required a lot of repair work, which was performed by Mosty Łódź.
The work began in April and was completed in October 2001. The following were done under the contract:
- anti-corrosion works on a steel structure with a total area of 76 thousand m2
- repair of the road structure
- repair of supports
In the course of the repair period of 20.02.2001 to 14.05.2001, a bypass bridge over the Vistula River was built using the elements of folding bridge DMS-65.
The work took less than seven months despite difficult weather conditions, including three floods on the Vistula River.
