Around 1850 Enrique Ochoa bought a plot of land along "Paso de Burgos" (Burgo's Passage) where he decided to build a bridge. The bridge didn't last long, and was destroyed by the water currents going beneath it. Another bridge was constructed, but it had the same fate. In 1859, a third bridge was constructed and given the name "Puente Alsina" (Alsina Bridge) in honor to Valentín Alsina, who was then the governor of the Province of Buenos Aires, and he helped getting the approval for the construction of the bridge.
In 1910 the Alsina bridge was replaced by a fourth bridge that stood until 1938, when the current "Puente Alsina" was constructed in the passage.
