Just prior to our arrival in Paris I read that some of the bridge had collapsed (I assume just a section of the railing) from the weight of the locks. It's hard to imagine the whole bridge collapsing - they are extremely sturdy looking when see them from below on a boat cruise. It is worth a visit just to see the abundance of locks - locks attached to locks - locks curling over the railing - and humble hardware store locks mixed in among beautifully engraved locks, colored locks, and locks in the shape of hearts. Fear not if you have forgotten to bring a lock - there are entrepreneurs on the bridge who can sell you one on the spot. The day we were there, it was late afternoon and people were enjoying a lovely summer day and just sitting on the bridge having picnics and enjoying the sunshine. I will also say there was a rather inebriated group of young men who were amusing themselves by removing locks. They had a lock key and were testing it on locks and whenever they got one open they would laugh and cheer. Still, the overall experience is one of promise and devotion. You're bound to cross the Seine at some point in Paris, why not do it via the Lock Bridge?
