Description of the bridge

Dandalo Bridge is built of local limestone and lime mortar. Both piers are erected on a rock, which protects it from being washed away.

The bridge is 34.5 m long and 2.80 m wide (including eaves). The width of the bridge at the left entrances is 4.70 m, length - 10 m, at the right side 3.50 m, width (according to the old building) - 2.40 m, span 21 m, arrow - 4 m. The height of the pier is 4.6 m, the width is 4.55 m. The hollows are marked in two rows on the same pier. There are three hollows in each row. The dimensions of hollows are 50x60; 55X52. Distance from the edge of the hollows is 35 m, the distance between the hollows is 38 cm, eaves thickness - 10-14 cm.

The bridge resembles the Latin letter S in the plan. In terms of construction techniques, it is much more difficult to build a bridge of this shape because the loads are distributed unevenly.

According to the 2006 decree of the President of Georgia, the bridge was assigned as the category of a fixed monument of culture of national importance.
