I think the TdF has gone over the bridge twice. Once on a normal stage where it was classified a 4th category climb (it's very short, but steep), and once in a team time trial. The bridge is so steep beceause it's located at the mouth of the Seine river and larger ships need to be able to pass whilst road traffic not be cut off.

Too expensive to viaduct to lessen the degree?

It's the last day of holiday-returners I guess. New workyear begins monday. It might be busy in Italy and Spain too. In Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium etc, we returned from our holidays weeks ago.

That's just the toll station at the entrance of a megacity, Paris in this case, southern entrance to Paris. That's what happens when millions of Parisians return from holidays. Well, thanks God not all the 12 million Greater Parisians leave at the same time, otherwise just imagine the nightmare it would be.

No, they merge in 4 lanes. It's a 8-lane motorway after this toll station.

It seems to me that section of the A10 from the Péage at St. Arnoult to the A6 near Paris is build for summer traffic, I don't think the average weekday traffic requires 8 lanes. (You're talking about the 150.000 - 200.000 range then).

That's the motorway after the toll station, just next to the TGV line.
