The Bazin vertical lift bridge was built in 1995. Its deck lifts to a height of 4 m to allow waterway traffic to pass. In its lowered position, it re-connects the one-way road traffic from rue Bazin to a two-way road. It is owned by the Greater Nancy Urban Community, but it is operated by the Navigation du Nord-Est service. The vertical lift bridge is manouvered by an Malzéville drawbridge control room.
