Introduction: Concrete Bridge

Two weeks ago i made a concrete bridge in front of my new house terrain.

I am not good with words but i have a video from that day and i think that can help someone making their own.

Major steps in this project:

It was a simple project made in just one day with 3 peoples.

There's a road in my town that has these on every drive way but about 10 feet off the ground

Did you end up removing the wood frame? If not, will the cement hold up after it has rotted away?

Exactly my concern! I noticed that no rebar have been used for the footings. It looks like they used a mesh but even with that, I don't think that the bridge would hold on for too long without proper reinforcement.

I used a steel mesh for reinforce, is a small bridge for small traffic, i hope is ok

This weekend i will remove the wood frame. I'm sure that will be ok. I will post new images next week.
