- Misspelled on every long span bridge list I've ever seen, this 300-meter narrow footbridge is located at Mapimí, Mexico.
- AAJ notes this bridge as having a 10-foot wide roadway and having been built by William Hildenbrand. The present-day bridge's deck measures only 1.8 meters and is restricted to foot traffic. In HBE, Tyrell takes credit for the design of the bridge and also notes the 10-foot roadway (though, HBE was probably a source for AAJ).
