A state of the art of developments of the Hybrid bridges is presented focusing on steel-concrete composite bridges, considering the steel beam, concrete deck and connections developments. The analysis and design methods of composite bridge structures, connections, the reliability and life cycle of bridges, new bridge system forms and the use of alternative materials are reviewed with some possible applications. Conceptual ideas on new connectors form and its application in steel-concrete composite bridge structures also presented.
