En la construcción de puentes o pases sobre carreteras, se usan vigas artesas.

"channel girders"; also "tubular girders" or "box girders"
Explanation:
As in, "Channel girders are used in the construction of bridges or highway overpasses."

As used here, the word "artesas" is related to "artesa" ("chute, tray, or box [such as the long boxes in which mortar is mixed]") and "arteson" ("caisson, coffer, tub, or U-shaped trough"). It has nothing to do with "artesano/na" ("skilled worker, artisan, or mechanic") or "artesiano/na" ("artesian"). -- Hope this helps!

El tejado colonial, prolongado por encima de la fachada, cubre el acceso y deja a la vista la estructura en "artesa con doble viga horizontal". El interior es simple y en él se destacan algunas pinturas de valor -un "Cristo de los temblores" y un "Jesús en el huerto"- junto a imágenes del arte sacro popular

Exposed beams.
