The existing bridge over the Reuss River between the municipalities of Stetten and Niederwil is being replaced in early 2016 by a new steel composite bridge. The new bridge consists of a rust-coloured box girder made of weathering steel and a deck slab of pale coloured concrete. The 100 meter long structure incorporating a double-curve and a sweeping camber is supported by two Y-shaped concrete pillars anchored in the riverbed.
