Le Viaduc de Chaumont:

From Web - Chaumont:
Le Viaduc est du type pont en arc, multiples traveés, il franchit la rivière Suize, et sert de pont-rail (Ligne Paris-Bâle).
Dimensions: 600 m de long, 50 arches sur une hauteur de 52 m.
L' architecte est Emile Decombe, l'ouvrage fut commencé en 1855 et conduit en un temps record : 15 mois suffisent pour mettre en œuvre 60 000 m³ de maçonnerie, grâce à 2500 ouvriers et 300 chevaux qui travaillent nuit et jour .

Son imposante majesté en fait la figure emblématique de la ville de Chaumont.
