Inventory: Lists | Log | References | Condensed | Search

This is a list of the only bridge from the suspension bridge inventory crossing Sumidero Canyon. Please note that different rivers with the same name will be grouped together. For example, selecting 'Bear Creek' shows bridges across several different Bear Creeks. Also, similarly named rivers are grouped separately. For example, 'River Dee' (UK) bridges are grouped separately from 'Dee River' (Australia) bridges. Wherever you see a "Bridgemeister ID" number you can click it to isolate the bridge on its own page.

  • This bridge is adjacent to the large deck arch bridge that carries the Pan-American Highway across Sumidero Canyon. It appears to have originally been a vehicular suspension bridge, but now only has one cable carrying a small pipeline. No road or pedestrian deck remains.
