Anda Bridge Postcard

I found little information about the bridge on the postcard. I couldn't even find relevant stats of it, unlike the bridge in the US (like the BridgeHunter site). But here is a background of the town and the need for the bridge.

Anda Bridge Postcard

The town of Anda in Pangasinan is the only island town of the Province of Pangasinan and located at the western tip of Lingayen Gulf. It is known in the old Philippine map as Cabarruyan Island. Before Anda bridge was built, one has to wait for the landing barge to cross the Catubig Channel separating Anda to mainland Bolinao.

The Anda Bridge, located at Garrita, Mal-ong, Anda in Pangasinan, was sponsored and inaugurated by then President Fidel V. Ramos, who hails from Pangasinan province. This bridge has 9 spans and almost a kilometer in distance.
