ACNH Bridge Size - Bridge Dimensions in Animal Crossing New Horizons

An anchor point is where the bridge connects to land via the invisible grid. The anchor point for a bridge requires four tiles, the space that the bridge spans over the river is four tiles wide, therefore the total area grid space for a bridge inclusive of the anchor points and the river is six tiles by four tiles, this will be exactly the same for both vertical and diagonal setups. 

How wide are bridges in ACNH? All bridges are 4 spaces wide, 2 for rail and 2 for workspace. Bridges can vary only through the width of the water, they can be placed over 3 - 5 wide rivers. This means you can’t build a bridge on a river that is less than 3 spaces and more than 5 spaces wide. 

How long can bridges be in ACNH? A bridge can be 3, 4, or 5 tiles long.

Note: Vertical or horizontal bridges always occupy a width of 4 units and can span across water that is 3-5 of length. Diagonal bridges must be 3 wide on the convex side and 4 wide on the concave side. The width of water may be either 3 or 4.

ACNH Diagonal Bridge Guide - How to Build a Diagonal Bridge in Animal Crossing

How to create the correct layout for building diagonally placed bridges? All you need to do is to learn how to create a diagonal grid space, the bridge will follow the same construction rules, in terms of the area covered which is six tiles long and four tiles wide.

1. Starting a bridge project

Talk to Tom Nook and choose “Let’s build a bridge”, then select one from the list of bridges and pay for it, you’ll get a construction kit. 

2. Planning out the anchor points

Start on one by creating the diagonal tiles that are four tiles wide follow the grid alignment and terraform a single hole in the ground diagonally, half a tile emerges in the form of corner tiles protruding from the grid edge to finalize the diagonal anchor point, simply cut off the corners of the tile creating a seamless diagonal anchor point.

3. Create diagonally placed tiles

Instead of it being four tiles long, this time it will be six, cut off the corners from the grid space and remove the excess material in between the two anchor points, your focus is on creating two established anchor points so that you can start construction on the bridge.

4. Complete another anchor point

Repeating step one to create the last anchor point on the other side of your bridge, if you have followed the steps correctly your bridge will be able to be built, if you can’t, figure out via the silhouette of the bridge area where you need to add or remove land and try to deploy it again.
