Beam bridges are constructed using a straightforward process that begins with the placement of abutments or piers at each end of the span. These supports serve as the foundation for the bridge structure. Horizontal beams, typically made of reinforced concrete or steel, are then installed atop the supports to create the bridge deck. The beams are carefully positioned and secured to ensure structural stability and load-bearing capacity. Additionally, formed concrete bridges are a common type of beam bridge, where concrete is poured into molds or forms to create the beams and deck. Once the concrete has cured, the forms are removed, leaving behind a solid and durable bridge structure. Once the deck is in place, additional components such as guardrails and pavement may be added to complete the bridge.
