2022 Quinamara, Bolivia

Population: 350 people
Daily Traffic: 350 people (30 children)
Span: 61.77m

In 2022, EIA-Toronto Chapter partnered with the University of Alberta to design a 61.77 m suspended footbridge. The bridge crosses the Rio Quinamara River and connects two rural communities in Quinamara.

The bridge is located 35 km from Torotoro and has helped 350 residents, with 30 users being children, cross between the two communities. Due to the pandemic, the EIA-Toronto Chapter travel team were unable to assist in the construction of the bridge. However, the bridge was successfully completed by EIA staff, University of Alberta members, and community members!
