Gilberto Echeverri Mejía Bridge
This 14,000-ton-capacity, 8-lane structure with pedestrian sidewalks, is the longest intra-urban bridge in Colombia. Its 1900-foot long expanse, illuminated at night with modern LED light fixtures, joins the El Poblado-Community 14 and the Guayabal-Community 15 areas after traversing over the Medellín River and the Las Vegas and Autopista Sur roadways. Its name pays homage to the Antioquia leader and politician assassinated in 2003.
