The bridge is over the section of the river near its confluence with the Rio Grande. It was constructed before Amistad Resevoir was created, and now crosses the upper reaches of that lake's extension into the Pecos. Originally 273 feet above a narrow shallow river (as attested to by the bridge sign), it now may be as much as 50 feet nearer the water, which often extends from canyon wall to wall, almost a quarter mile across. Despite the river's depth, no diving is allowed from the bridge.
Went over the Pecos Highway 90 bridge in October 2008. The deck was under construction at the time and it was one lane traffic.
Went over it New Years Weekend here are some photos
