This 32m length movable bridge with two lanes host a 1st category street. The bridge intrados is 2.4-3.0 m over the sea level to allow the passage for small boats along the Candiano channel between S. Vitale and city Darsena.

The deck is built up by a reinforced steel plate with trapezoidal steel elements welded to the secondary beams.
