Bridge, structure that spans horizontally between supports, whose function is to carry vertical loads. Generally speaking, bridges can be divided into two categories: standard overpass bridges or unique-design bridges over rivers, chasms, or estuaries.

A bridge is a structure built to span a physical obstacle, such as a body of water, valley, or road, without closing the way is constructed for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle, usually something that can be detrimental to cross otherwise.

There are many different designs that each serve a particular purpose and apply to different situations. Partial failure of bridge deck.

Overhead superstructure undamaged. Bridge reopened after complete reconstruction. Existing overhead arch remained, however new bridge deck was designed to be supported by sets of 4 hanger cables, where the existing deck was designed for single hanger cables.

The load acting on the bridge structures are generally divided into two categories: (1) those acting on the superstructure, and (2) those acting on the substructure.

The major load components of highway bridges are dead load, live load (static and dynamic), environmental loads (temperature, wind, and earthquake), and other loads (collision.
