Additional Details:
The International foot bridge, connecting Laredo and Nuevo Laredo was completed in 1922, and is the finest on the Mexican border. Many thousands of people pass over this bridge daily, and numerous residents of Nuevo Laredo and school children come to the American side each day for work and study. Shortly after completion, one of the worst floods in the history of the Rio Grande swept over the bridge, but practically no damage was done.
