Costilla Crossing Bridge

The historic Costilla Crossing Bridge spanning the Rio Grande is one of the most spectacular bridges in the world. It’s a thacher type truss bridge located in a remote area between Conejos and Costilla counties, in southern Colorado, USA.

This double span truss bridge over the Rio Grande was built in 1892 by Joseph F. Thomas (Wrought Iron Bridge Co.) and rehabilitated in 2006. The bridge is in excellent condition and is open to one-lane traffic. This outstanding state bridge in southern Colorado is 313.9 ft long. It’s also known as the Lobato Bridge and it’s the southernmost bridge over the Rio Grande River in Colorado. It sits on County Road G between Antonito and Jaroso. It’s the oldest vehicular truss bridge in southern Colorado.
