Alamosa River Bridge
Posted July 16, 2015, by Ron Brown (ronald [at] totacc [dot] com)

Driving down from Albuquerque to Las Cruces in Jun 2015 I noticed this bridge is no longer there. There had been some major highway work done on this section of IH-25 and they must have removed they bridge at that time.
