A girder truss is a form of structural timber bridge which uses a truss structure to support the roadway. It consists of two main girders supported by vertical or diagonal bracing members, forming a lattice-like structure. The girders and bracing members are usually made of timber, but may be of steel, masonry, or reinforced concrete. The girder truss is often used in rural areas and smaller bridges, where its low construction cost makes it an economical choice.
