The babbling and shallow Cumberland River is placid while winding through the rocks toward Spring Village. But on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day of 2013, a catastrophic flash flood roared through this riverbed after a torrential rainfall of up to 12 inches. Several people were killed. The damages equaled 15% of the country’s GDP. Reconstruction of the catchment, plus the 85 foot long Spring Village Bridge you are driving over, was financed by the Government of Mexico. The project was finished in 2018.
