Hi, Muh1994,

You can chose either "has been built" or "was built." The meaning will be that because the bridge has been/ was built, it will help the traffic flow.

  • Since the bridge has been built, it will help the traffic flow.
  • Since the bridge was built, it will help the traffic flow.

If you would like "since" to have a meaning related to time (a completely different meaning), the sentence would need to be changed to something like this:

  • Since the bridge has been built, it has helped the traffic flow.
  • The bridge has helped the traffic flow (ever) since it has been built.
