Highway Bridges Durango - Mazatlán

 

Mexico, April 2015

This the Sierra Madre, a huge mountain system that separates the states of Durango and Sinaloa. This is the highway that crosses this mountains. More than 45 bridges and 60 tunnels had to be built. 
My mission is to take pictures and video for structural analysis.
