As of Monday and throughout the week, the Brasserie Bridge, located in front of the Georges de Lyon Brasserie, will be the subject of consolidation work.
The structure, built in 1972, has weaknesses in its concrete beams.
Several cracks were detected last year during an inspection.
Props will be installed this week, before the entire bridge is repaired.
This first intervention will take place this week, at night, with the shutdown of the Quai Gailleton.
The left lanes of the M7, already closed in the Marseille-Paris direction, will also be inaccessible in the other direction of traffic, indicates the metropolis which predicts "slowdowns at rush hour".
Another week of work is scheduled for October this time "but without additional constraint on traffic", promises the community.
Lyon is more congested than before the Covid-19 epidemic at "extreme levels"
