Height of Bridge, Pasta Bridges

Q:    The rules state that the height of the bridge built should be 2.5 cm. Does that mean the total height of the bridge needs to be 2.5 cms or does the base of the bridge (built with the long pasta) have to be at a height of 2.5 cms ?

A.  The beaker containing the load will  sit on the highest part of the bridge, which needs to be at least 2.5 CM. above the the support. While pasta spanning the platform can be below that 2.5 cm, all of the beaker must sit at or above the 2.5 cm before loading.  See the following for clarification:  Pasta Bridges Supplemental Guide
