The bridge extended from the City of Yaxchilan, present day Mexico, across the river to the northern shore. This side is present day Guatemala. The main span was 63 meters which was the longest bridge in the ancient world until Italian Engineers constructed a longer span in AD1377. "sentence in bold"

Really interesting, thanks for the computer reconstruction. Any bibliography I can search for more on this?
