5-Span bridge section - 507 A-B1

(France - Basse-Normandie - Vierville-sur-Mer)

Along the Avenue de Bedford is the 5-span bridge part (507 A-B1) can be found. It was part of the floating bridge which belonged to the artificial port on Omaha beach.
After the landings in Normandy, the Allies began with the construction of two Mulberry ports, a American Mulberry A to Vierville-sur-Mer (Omaha beach), the second was a British Mulberry B at Arromanches-les-Bains.

Besides the bridge is a large sign with the poem "Jean".
