Strengths and Weaknesses

There are four major types of bridges. The biggest differences between the four is the distance they can cross in a single span and the materials that they are constructed with. A span is the distance between two bridge supports, whether they are columns, towers, or the wall of a canyon. After reading about the four types from the website provided, fill in the information needed for each bridge type below. Remember, this is the site you used to complete Bridge Design Project P.3. You may choose to review the site if needed.
