According to the U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics, there are approximately 600,000 bridges in the United States. The number worldwide must be significantly greater, though not proportionally as the U.S. is a richer nation and has more territory requiring more bridges than most. I'm aware this is not a complete answer, but the previous suggested answer was "400", and that is WAY off.
