The Making of a Bridge

First, to get over that stream, install two very large concrete culverts or pipes for the water. to go through.
Cover with gravel and dirt. This is a lot less trouble than anchoring a big steel bridge over the water!

Well, then you need concrete walls on each side to hold the dirt in!
At least another 2 or 3 months time.

And well, the wall needs to be high enough to keep pedestrians from falling in the stream.
Allowing enough room for a sidewalk on each side of the road!

After about 6 months it looks like you might actually extend this street over the stream!
I have been walking by this construction for what seems like forever!

With the wall nearly done, we need more dirt and gravel.

And Suddenly One Day! I come across a paved street, concrete gutter and concrete sidewalk on both sides!
Now why was I so impatient? See! It is beautiful and very useful! Our city at work!
