We drove from Rio Rancho, NM, to Silver City, NM, and part of that journey was along windy, scenic NM-152 through Hillsboro. Along the way, there were several old bridges, two of the three of which I was able to photograph safely.
One of the bridges is shown here:
Unfortunately, the name plates had been removed.
There was a second one, identical to this one. One is called “Middle Percha Creek Bridge” and the other is called “Percha Creek Bridge.” These sites are listed on BridgeHunter.com, and have their build year 1929.
I did find that, unfortunately, these bridges will be replaced in winter of 2021, according to the Department of Transportation website.
There was yet another Percha Creek Bridge that has been replaced for traffic, though the original bridge is nearby and can be walked upon. This one was also built in 1929, and featured a historical marker sign.
Thank you for reading my post.
