Puente Baluarte in México

Recently returned from a 17 day loop of north and central México. A bucket list item was sneaking through the construction zone and onto the world's tallest cable stay bridge, Puente Baluarte.

Here are some pix showing the tunnel approaching the bridge, one of many on this new toll road.

Luckily we saw the sign before we entered it - we took the long way over the top instead. 15 miles of tunnel would not have been fun!



cheers

When was that ? Must be early in the season. I've crossed this tunnel at least 4 times and I never saw so much snow, water and ice...
I always did it at the end of august or beginning of september.
