How to Build a Long Bridge in Animal Crossing New Horizons?

All you need are your terraforming tools, some fences and some patterns. You can add some extra items afterward but the basic construction of the bridge is simple. You need to have two points that you connect on the same level.


1. The first thing you should do is to get out your terraforming tools, create a four or five wide rectangle, and make it be as long as you want your bridge to be. If you want it to have a curve, it should be a little bit longer.

2. Once you’ve got your rectangle, set out you want to, go back to your terraforming tools, and hop on over to any path, put down the path on your bridge.

3. Go ahead and hop into the custom designs, grab any custom design you like and use it to cover on top of the original path, you can even go for different patterns together, this part is kind of where you can be creative.

4.  The next thing to do is grab some fences, go ahead and start lining up the sides of your bridge with the fences. Once you’ve put these items down, it's definitely gonna start looking like a bridge.

5.  The last part of building a bridge in Animal Crossing is to put down the water, get the water right up to the edge of both sides of the bridge and make the water go far, which makes the bridge really looks like it's going over a real river because from most perspectives you can't actually see the side of the cliff.
