how do you build a Bridge in SimCity 2013? I have been looking all over and I cannot find any info on building a bridge across a river.

You can not. Sometimes, they will automatically be built, but there is currently no way to do this.

 

Given that this was a basic feature in all previous SimCities, and is even further expanded upon in other games, I suspect it will be part of a pay-for-it/DLC feature in the future.

Bridges are built automatically as you drag out the road across water. They are more expensive, so make sure you have enough cash. Bridges need go start and stop on land, and are continuous (no intersections over water)

Other factors can prevent a bridge from beiing placed, such as if there is a placed building nearby and there isnt enough room to modify the land to support the ramps up to the bridge.

Another thing to consider.

 

You can build Golden Gate bridge style bridges out of avenues, or standard bridges from the street.

Another thing to consider, a bridge has to be started and ended quite a distance from the shore.  A lot farther than you would think.

Set Bridges as "Pay for features" will be another way for EA to Kill the Hen with Gold Eggs, by discouraging the players !

This does not work for me at all.

 

It keeps saying "Road too Steep". I already know it's done automatically. It has to be a glitch and/or missing code in the software. It simply does not work.
