World's Oldest Bridge That Is Still Functioning!

The oldest date-able and established bridge in the world that is still getting used today.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, this is the oldest functioning bridge today. Commonly called Caravan Bridge, the bridge that runs over the Meles river and is the oldest bride in the world that is still in use. This ancient arched stone slab bridge was built sometime around 850 BCE in Izmir, Turkey. At one point, the Caravan Bridge served as the checked entry point into the city of Izmir.

This post is related to Engineering because people in history had to create a design for the bridge. Those people also had to cut then stone slabs accurately, and had to test the bridge to see if there was anything wrong they would have to fix it or improve.
