what's the difference between them?

The boy ran over the bridge
The boy ran over the bridge

walking across the bridge
walking over the bridge

It seems like both say " cruzar el puente". Even some figures ( concerning this) show the same for both.

Thanks in advance!

    I don't see any difference in meaning. There might be a slight difference in the kind of action being described (walking "on" the bridge versus walking "to" the other side), but that may be an artificial distinction, and it's definitely an unnecessary one.
