    Two plaques were posted on the bridge to commemorate 100 years since its erection. The Ojuela Bridge Plaque reads:“ (1892 - 1992)

    The Constitutional Govern of Durango: Jose Ramirez Gamero The President of Mapimi, Durango: Elias Magallanes Campos

    It has been a century since this bridge was built.

    We pay respect and admiration to the people who worked during those years in this mineral town.
