"The two-span steel through truss bridge, which crosses the Rio Chama, is the sole example of this kind of bridge on the Cumbres & Toltec. A Pratt design, the spans were built by the New Jersey Iron & Steel Company. According to Wilson and Glover, the trusses were installed across the Rio Chama in 1924, but were used near Delta, Colorado prior to that date."
