The Millau Viaduct is the tallest bridge structure in the world. Located near the southern end of France, the bridge began with Michel Virlogeux, an engineer, and was later refined in a competition. Construction began in 2001, and unique challenges to be faced during the logical innovations. To a person looking at it, the bridge appears to have seven 'sails' floating across the valley- these are the seven cables. the tall slender piers are unusually shaped, and the roadway has a slight curve that gives an interesting effect.
