Basically, from the dictionary, a bridge carries a road across an obstacle. On top it could be a railway, or it could be a walking path, or it could be a vehicle roadway. And down below it could be going over a river or it could be a ravine, or it could be another road. Everyone knows what a bridge is; however, not everyone knows the names of the components of a bridge. http://sjcivil.net/news/bridges-101-what-makes-up-a-bridge/ --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/sjccsitesurvey/support

It was published in 2021. http://sjcivil.net/news/another-contractor-claims-tool-asce-71-21-identifying-quantifying-and-proving-loss-of-productivity/ --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/sjccsitesurvey/support
