After paying my loan i got the DIY for this bridge but after it was built the recipe was gone.
Anyone had the same problem?
Did the developer do that on purpose?

Anonymous 2

I've paid off my house loan 98,000 Bells no option to build a bridge, so I upgraded my house 198,000 bells, paid it off still no option to build a bridge, now theres an option to add a room, (398,000 bells). When do I get to build a bridge?

Anonymous 1

Are bridges a set length or do they stretch to fit the river? How wide a river can they gap?

Also can bridges be placed immediately beside one another to double-up their width? As I might like that for main roads if it is possible.
