Concrete Bridge

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:

    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
