Long Description:
Puente de la Mujer is of the Cantilever spar cable-stayed bridge type and is also a swing bridge, but somewhat unique in its asymmetrical arrangement. It has a single mast with cables suspending a portion of the bridge which rotates 90 degrees in order to allow water traffic to pass. When it swings to allow watercraft passage the far end comes to a resting point on a stabilizing pylon. The bridge is 170 meters long and 6.2 meters wide.

The coordinates were taken at the west entrance of the bridge.
