The Puente Rio Cupa is another bridge designed and built by Walter Yánez. Originally, the village (Union Manabi) was hoping to build a vehicular bridge across the river. You can still see one of the abutments behind the bridge in this photo. Either they ran out of money or they had trouble building such a long span across the river.
Walter's bridge is an 85 meter long suspension bridge supported on pinned base towers. We'll take another look at this interesting bridge tomorrow.
