An "overpass" is a road or pathway built over another road or railway, while a "bridge" is a structure spanning and providing passage over a physical obstacle, like a river or road.
Overpass vs. Bridge

Key Differences

An "overpass" specifically denotes a structure that allows a road, railway, or path to cross over another road or railway, emphasizing vertical hierarchy in transportation. A "bridge," more broadly, is a structure that spans and provides passage over an obstacle, which could be a body of water, road, or valley.

Overpasses are primarily found in urban settings and are integral to managing traffic flow in congested areas. Bridges, conversely, are used in various environments, from cities to rural areas, and serve the purpose of connecting two separate points divided by physical barriers.

The primary function of an overpass is to facilitate the uninterrupted flow of traffic on both levels it connects. Bridges, however, have a broader range of functions, including transporting vehicles, pedestrians, pipelines, or railways.
