A small space on the E side of the D570 contains a US monument. Take the A330/N57 S from Nancy and get off at the D9. Turn E on the D9 at the exit and then SE on the D9D to Bainville-aux-Miroirs. It will become the Rue de Leubeville. At its intersection with the D570 in town, the monument will be on the E side of the D570, a tad S of the intersection proper.
