Bridge

A bridge is a structure built to span physical obstacles without closing the way underneath such as a body of water, valley, or road, for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle. There are many different designs that each serve a particular purpose and apply to different situations. Designs of bridges vary depending on the function of the bridge, the nature of the terrain where the bridge is constructed and anchored, the material used to make it, and the funds available to build it.

The Tacoma Narrows Bridge (Gallopin' Gertie as it was soon to be known) is known as one of the most dramatic engineering failures in history. This bridge's collapse helped engineers learn how to better design suspension bridges so that failures like this wouldn't happen. Thankfully, no one died on this bridge, with the exception of one man's dog, who he could not get out of his car which also fell with the bridge.
