Farewell To Paris’ Famous Love Lock Bridge Coming Soon?!?!?!

There may be an end to the Pont des Arts love lock bridge in Paris.

Famously known for a place people can come and leave a lock showcasing ones love for another, locked on the bridge throwing away the key in the river below, symbolizing long lasting love, will not last forever anymore.

The city council’s plan to dismantle them Monday for good has been approved.  Several hundred thousand padlocks in places around Paris cause “long-term heritage degradation and a risk for visitors’ security.”

Padlock-proof plexiglass panels will soon replace the Pont des Arts bridge’s metal grills.
