I wonder what Col Tupper's wares were like. :')
Just for you, Dana/Kay
Further research uncovered the following from a NRHP MPS .pdf
Excellent find, Jimmy!
Considering there are several lattice girders scattered across Puerto Rico that were constructed by Eugene Rollin & Co., also of Braine-le-Comte, Belgium, I'd say that furthers my suspicions.
I finally found a bit of info on Spanish Wikipedia that gives us a lead on who built the bridge, stating that construction work was subcontracted to the "Société d'Entreprises et des Constructions des Colonies Espagnoles"
And from there on, everything is in French, and my French is even more rudimentary than my Spanish is...
Then there's this Google Books lead that mentions that Belgian bridges could be had for 2/3rds the cost of an American span, which leads me to believe the French subcontractor was ordering Belgian bridges, probably from the same manufacturer that constructed all of the extant Lattice Girders.
Anyone have any insight? I know Nathan and Jason have done more work in Europe than anyone else.

Sad news, one span was lost to Hurricane Maria:
Here's a rarity: Pin-connected truss built in the 1940s
It's a common theme for Google Maps to mis-name streams when they get close to their confluences.
On the subject of the NBI, is anyone opposed to merging the 96 NBI data?
It seems fairly spot-on to me.
The 1996 NBI lists a closed bridge dating to 1903 over Big Creek:
Span length seems to match IMO.
That's not how physics works. If the bridge was moved off the pier, the tree would've gone with it.
