Building A Concrete Pedestrian Bridge



When we were in Alamos, Sonora, Mexico last winter,
 we came across this pedestrian bridge under construction.



Mexicans are masters at concrete construction 
and I myself have always enjoyed the challenge
 of building concrete forms for various projects.


The previous year there had been heavy rains from a hurricane 
and there was rebuilding all over town.

  2. I think the wood frame is beautiful in itself!

  3. This is a wonderful post, thank you. I am in the middle of building a light vehicle bridge over a small creek myself and this is inspiring construction. Beautiful.
