CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS, MAINLY FROM THE EXTER BRIDGE NEAR THE WEST GERMAN TOWN VLOTHO WHICH IS ONE OF THE MOST FREQUENTED PARTS OF THE AUTOBAHN TODAY [A2]!

the photo above shows the Exter bridge which was finished in 1939 and which is part of the Reichsautobahn Hannover-Berlin, one of the most frequented highways in Germany today! Today named A2 it is the main East-West connection in Germany's Autobahn system. Seventeen of the eighteen documents offered are original construction details of this bridge above as the were given to the stone-masons who crafted every stone by hand! Every stone was numbered and had to be made to a correct size. Stones with a weight of more then 200kg had to receive a special hole (Wolfsloch) to anchor it to the construction. The material used was shell-limestone. The name of the stone-mason (Steinmetz) who was assigned the stone on each order sheet is written on most documents in the column on the upper right. The documents not only give the dimensions but also the angles, the surface of the stone (rough, smooth, etc.) and location in the bridge!

the document below is one of two documents from the bridge over the valley Lämershagen (Talbrücke Lämershagen) which was Reichsautobahn construction site #530, also on the Autobahn Hannover-Berlin! The red stamp says that this paper was only for the jobsite supervisor (Polier).
