The Rancho River Bridge, a picture of which taken in 1930 is shown below, is a short span on the outskirts of the-now city of Lipa near the border of the Municipality of Cuenca. It is presently a modern four-lane bridge made of concrete, but in 1929, when it was opened, it just offered two lanes commensurate with road traffic at the time with steel trusses above it.
The 1930 Annual Report of the Director of the Bureau of Public Works had this brief description about this bridge:
