Thank you for the information, Robert.

Do you happen to have a picture we could use?

Hi. This bridge carries a rural/mountainous road that leads to Antillean Adventist University. To the best of my knowledge (and I have known this bridge since 1971) that road has never been named. On the nearest named road to this bridge, PR-106, there is --on the EB side-- a sign with an arrow pointing to the right and the words "Universidad Adventista de las Antillas". IMO, this entry should perhaps read "Facts: Overview: Pony truss bridge over Rio Yaguez on the road to Universidad Adventista de las Antillas." Thanks, RR
