2017 Bridge Gallery & Data

Below are the 2017 Bridge Expo Entries! The cost listing was provided by groups using the webform for purchasing materials. The actual measurement for the materials used in the bridge might vary depending if a group tracked all of the material that was purchased. The winning bridge will be the best ratio of live load to dead load measurements. 

The winner will be the bridge that holds the most weight and costs the least! The load is increased until the bridge shows signs of unbalanced forces and nears collapse.
