Abstrakt: During the fifteenth century, Pont de la Daurade in Toulouse and Pont Notre-Dame in Paris were subject to regular maintenance operations or more substantial repairs. The study of two work campaigns documented by the records of deliberations and by the municipal accounts reveals the administrative rationale of public works undertaken by urban governments. The paper focuses on the financing of the maintenance, on the human and technical resources involved in repair works, and on the organization of urban building sites. The possibility to maintain, to repair, or to rebuild a bridge depended on many factors. Consequently, the transition from wood to stone bridges cannot be simply interpreted as a technological progress but as a result of economical and political conditions.
