DURANGO, MX -- If you decide to take a scenic drive through northwest Mexico anytime soon you'll likely run across something big.

It's the world's tallest cable-suspension bridge and it just opened in Durango, Mexico.

The Baluarte Bridge is 403 meters high, which is tall enough to fit the Eiffel Tower under it.

The bridge is now in the Guinness Book of World Records, too.  It replaces a dangerous road known as the Devil's Backbone.
