A  suspension bridge is a type of bridge in which the deck is hung below suspension cables on vertical suspenders. This type of bridge has cables suspended between towers, plus vertical suspender cables that carry the weight of the deck below, upon which traffic crosses. This arrangement allows the deck to be level or to arc upward for additional clearance. Like other suspension bridge types, this type often is constructed without falsework.

Compared to bridge:structure=simple-suspension the body of the bridge is a rigid block not prone to swinging.
