Bridge Designer

Look up some pictures of bridges on the Internet.  What kinds of geometric figures do you see?  Which are most common? 

 

Conduct a search to make and make a list of the longest bridges in the United States.  Which type of bridge is each of the bridges on the list (suspension, cable-stayed, or steel arch)?  What type of bridges are the longest bridges and why are they that type of construction?
