The economic depression of 1929, together with the unprecedented devastation left behind by the 1928 San Felipe hurricane, stopped the momentum of highway construction. This inactivity ended in the following decade, thanks to the extension of President Roosevelt's New Deal programs to the island, assigning 34 million dollars to the Puerto Rico Emergency Relief Administration (PRERA). A good part of that money was dedicated to the construction of bridges, highways and rural roads. Until that moment, the Federal government had not assigned funds for public works or other necessities in Puerto Rico, except to mitigate the effects of natural disasters.
Puerto Rico Iron Works, a Ponce, P.R. foundry and machine shop which sold, repaired, designed, and fabricated machinery and bridges, was Puerto Rico's most prolific steel bridge fabricator in the 20th Century. Its main customer was the sugar industry of southern Puerto Rico. The PR-1 Aruz Bridge (No. 24), in the municipality of Juana Diaz, may have been this company's largest bridge. It is a 50 meter Parker truss, built in 1938.
