I meant to post this last month after visiting Charles Bridge. Actually, I had wanted to make other posts too, but just did not get around to it. I hope to have a chance to post more often.
The reconstruction work on Charles Bridge that started last year is expected to be completed in 2010. Along with work to stabilize the bridge and replace cobblestones, gas lamps are going to be installed. The work on the bridge is being done is phases, so only a small portion of the bridge is closed off at any time. You can get an idea as to how they are doing that from the pictures below.
You can read more about the work being done by clicking on the following links:
