Labo Del Rio Bridge

Archuleta County

The 1913 bridge is an example of construction considered quite advanced for its time.  A Kansas company built it using rivets, rather than pinned connections.

The bridge was replaced at its old site along US Hwy. 160 and moved to this isolated crossing of the Piedra River.  The superstructure is unaltered except for deck replacement.  Listed under Highway Bridges in Colorado Multiple Property Submission.
