Today bridge building is truly a science; only three decades back it as hardly worthy to be termed an art; while seventy-five years ago, it was no better than a trade. Nearly all of the important and distinctive features of modern American Bridge practice have been developed within the memories of engineers still living; and so far as most lines of bridge construction are concerned, the same statement holds true for European practice as well. But while bridge building as a learned profession is thus of very recent origin, it must not be through that the previous centuries made no contributions to our knowledge of bridge construction; for there are in existence today bridges that have withstood the ravages of time for over two thousand years, and the records of antiquity tell of others built many centuries earlier-then before the dawn of authentic history.

A structure carrying a road, path, railway, etc. across a river, road, or other obstacle is known as a bridge.
