It seems bridges are tagged bridge=*. I'm interested in what the bridge is crossing.

Specifically, I'm trying to find a way to query Overpass for bridges that cross certain waterways (not railways or other streets).

Is this possible using the Overpass API? What keys/tags would I be looking for?

I suggest this query:

way[waterway][tunnel!=yes]({{bbox}});
nwr(around:0)[bridge];
out geom;

The [tunnel!=yes] might come on surprise. A test in London did otherwise found a street bridge over another street where conincidentially also is an underground channel in the map.
