The first step is creating a stretch of foundation. This will not be the actual bridge. The stretch of foundation must be at least four tiles wide, but it can be wider. The two middle tiles will be the actual bridge, so if a wider bridge is desired, players should add additional tiles to the width now. The stretch of foundation will be the length of the bridge and players can make it as long or as short and they want. However, it needs to be at least eight tiles long.

Now it is time to add a valley, river, lake, or pond under the bridge. To create a body of water use the water tool and the create a valley use the terrain leveling tool that causes the ground to dip downwards. Be very careful not to lower the area in front of either side of the bridge in which Sims will enter and exit the bridge. The body of water or the valley can be as long or deep as the player wants it to be.

Using the connecting stairs tool, add a set of stairs to each end of the bridge. Without the stairs, Sims will not be able to access the bridge. Also, add railings to the bridge, and the rest to the floor tiles to the remaining foundation. Players can also add a different wall covering to the remaining foundation if they wish. Once this is all complete the bridge is complete and ready for Sims to cross.
