Learn how to make and destroy a bridge in Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH). Read on to learn at what point in the story Bridges become available and how to place them as well as to see the complete list of bridges.
List of Contents
Here is the complete list of bridges you can build in New Horizons. There are 8 types of bridges in total.
Red Zen Bridge
You can build up to 8 bridges on your island. If you want to move a bridge, you will need to destroy it first.
|Summary of Steps|
After upgrading Resident Services, you'll gain access to infrastructural changes to the island by saying "Let's talk about infrastructure". After that, select "About bridges/inlines".
Choose to build a bridge, and select the type of bridge you want to build; each bridge differs in price. See the complete list of bridges in the section above.
Use the Bridge Marker Kit next to the water to start the construction. Bridges take up 4 spaces in width, and you can build in water that is 3-5 spaces wide. Check this section for more notes on bridge construction.
If you have been using the Island Designer app, you can use it to terraform the water.
When making Bridges, instead of paying all at once, you'll be able to pay little by little until the amount is reached. Even the island residents will donate, although little.
After you decide the location for the construction, a Gyroid will be set in front of the planned location to accept donations. Once the full amount has been paid, the Bridge will be constructed.
After receiving the Bridge Marker Kit, you can cancel the construction anytime by talking to Nook at the Resident Services. However, take note that Bells that have been donated will be gone.
|Summary of Steps|
To reach the point in the story where you can build a Bridge, the first step is to open the store, Nook's Cranny.
To get to this point in the story, you'll need to both pay back your initial loan of 5,000 Miles and collect resources like the hard-to-gather Iron Nuggets to fund the construction of Nook's Cranny.
After Nook's Cranny is built, Tom Nook will give the player the new goal of setting up Housing Kits for new residents. He will also request the player to place a Bridge, and give the player a Bridge Construction Kit DIY Recipe.
Crafting the Bridge Construction Kit will allow the player to place a single bridge. It will require Log Stakes, which the player will already have the DIY Recipe for.
Use the Bridge Construction Kit next to a River to build it. You'll have the opportunity to visualize the bridge and see what it will look like before placing it. At this point in the game, this is the only Bridge which can be built, so be sure to place it in an ideal spot.
It will take a day for the bridge to be constructed. In one day of real-world time, your bridge will be up and ready for use!
No matter which bridge type you choose, they are all 4 spaces wide. Even the log bridge that looks like 2 spaces wide, actually takes up 4 space.
Your bridges can vary only through the width of the water.
Here are important things to take note of when choosing a place to build your bridge.
|Required Space for Water|
You need to have at least 4x3 space of water to build a bridge. You can also build a bridge over a river that is up to 5 spaces wide. You cannot build that is less than 3 spaces and more than 5 spaces wide.
You should have 1 row of free space on both sides of the bridge. It is also required that both sides of land are equal, meaning the edges should be parallel to each other.
You cannot build a bridge when there is a river or cliff near the bridge. To ensure a successful construction, make sure that there is free space around the boundaries bridge.
You also cannot build bridges next to each other. Each bridge should be at least 1 space apart.
Unlike inclines, you can actually build diagonal bridges, provided you follow the requirements above.
You can use the Island Designer app to make the river flow diagonally. When left with jagged corners, you can use the waterscaping permit to smoothen the edges of land.
Bridges and inclines cannot be moved after setting up their construction kits, so choose their location carefully.
You can demolish an existing bridge by talking to Tom Nook about infrastructure. Destroying a bridge will cost you 10,000 Bells. After paying up, the bridge will be gone the next day.
Bridges provide an easy way to cross rivers without having to pull out the Vaulting Pole every time, making them a big time-saver.
That said, as makeshift bridges can be made with the Island Designer tool, they're not a great long-term investment.
On the other hand, Inclines cannot be made with Island Designer, and are only available as infrastructure projects, making them more useful in the long run.
Each Bridge is a sizeable investment of 98,000 Bells or more. If you want to make this kind of change to your island, be sure to start saving up early.

>>6 Not everyone has the luxury of playing the game every day for hours and hours. I think it should remain in the game. To each his/her own
