    wow nice bridge ,but do hope you have enough supports for the center of it because it looks long and you get a couple of people on it it may give way and you sure don't want that to happen after all you and your dads hard work .That took hard work and you and dad should be proud .2 thumbs up 5 stars

    hi sissy, In final assembly, two steel strings are stretched to avoid the bridge collapse
