A bridge is designed for trains, pedestrian or road traffic, a pipeline or waterway for water transport or barge traffic. An aqueduct is a bridge that carries water, resembling a viaduct, which is a bridge that connects points of equal height. A road-rail bridge carries both road and rail traffic.

Bridges are subject to unplanned uses as well. The areas underneath some bridges have become makeshift shelters and homes to homeless people, and the undersides of bridges all around the world are spots of prevalent graffiti. Some bridges attract people attempting suicide, and become known as suicide bridges.

To create a beautiful image, some bridges are built much taller than necessary. This type, often found in east-Asian style gardens, is called a Moon bridge, evoking a rising full moon. Other garden bridges may cross only a dry bed of stream washed pebbles, intended only to convey an impression of a stream. Often in palaces a bridge will be built over an artificial waterway as symbolic of a passage to an important place or state of mind. A set of five bridges cross a sinuous waterway in an important courtyard of the Forbidden City in Beijing, the People's Republic of China. The central bridge was reserved exclusively for the use of the Emperor, Empress, and their attendants.

So whats new? Big corporation messes up environment and doesn't want to everything necessary to clean the place up. Does' this really surprise anyone? I personally think that if the salmon need the sediment cleared out and nice clean sand put down that the suckers should be forced to do it, even if they end up living on the street. THEY messed it up not the Salmon that all of us Native Americans revere. Hey, I am a senior citizen-and i lived on the street not long ago--surely those people can do it if an old woman and three kids can. So, come on Zidell--WOMAN up and set everything right!!!!
