HO Model Railroad question, Is there a curved bridge section for sale?

I have an elevated 18 inch radius curved track. I want two or three curved bridge sections. But all I can find for sale in shops are STRAIGHT bridge sections. They are inexpensive, but I really need a CURVED bridge section. Thanks.
I found it myself ($57.00) by doing an internet search using:
HO model railroad curved bridge.

IT LOOKS TO ME LIKE THERE IS NO BEST ANSWER> NOT ONE OF YOU FOUND A CURVED BRIDGE FOR SALE, and I could.

I’m not sure if they sell curved pieces. I know there are flexible track pieces. Look here:

    I checked Atlas' and Kato's websites and could find no curved-bridging in HO… Kato has curved-viaduct, but only in N-scale

    In my research for my layout (N-scale) I'm aware that the RR's try VERY hard to avoid curves on bridges. Though I read of sneaking curves onto straight girder bridges.

    I guess you'll either have to build from scratch a trestle bridge, OR a concrete viaduct to get your curve.

    GOOD LUCK !!

    Check with Walther's trains, their number is 1-800-487-2467.

    You did not specify what kind of bridge. I use the Atlas plate girder bridges and kitbashe them to make curved bridges of that type. Several bridge kits cost me much less than $57.00. I make them up in various radii and sell them assembled at swap meets. I can sometimes get $30.00 for one bridge assembly. If you look at the prototype, their bridges are usually made curved using short straight pieces. I’m glad you found what you were looking for. I have been model railroading for over forty years. If you have a question, especially about tracklaying or scenery, I am glad to share my experience with you.

    I want to get one for my husband but I’m not sure which model I should get for him. My budget is limited and my knowledge about model trains not that much.
