Description 

The Martín Peña Bridge is a property of statewide significance under the National Register’s Criterion C for engineering and architecture, and Criterion A for transportation associated with the Carreterra Central. Built in 1939, is one of the most elegant examples of Art Deco concrete beam bridges in Puerto Rico. The structure was designed by Cecilio Delgado and Francisco Fortuño, two engineers of the Puerto Rican Department of the Interior, and was built by engineer Raúl Gaya Benejam. The bridge’s construction was financed after US Congress granted funding for road and bridge construction. (NRHP Form)
