The world's tallest bridge is inaugurated in southern France

This is a gorgeous sight.



Stretching 1.6 miles through France’s Massif Central mountains, the Millau Viaduct, designed by the English architect Lord Norman Foster, will enable motorists to take a drive 891 feet above the Tarn River valley. It creates a direct route between Paris and the Mediterranean coast. French President Jacques Chirac participated in the inauguration ceremony today. The bridge opens to traffic on December 17.
