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.

  1. Oh yes, do go back to beautiful Alamos. Perhaps we can meet you there sometime!

  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.
