A pile bridge is a bridge where the bridge deck is supported directly by foundations poles serving. For the poles historically and most commonly, wooden beams are used but in more modern structures concrete or steel poles are employed as well. Pile bridges are among the oldest bridge types even though they are rarely used nowadays.
