Looking for help on how to simulate either structural effects from strong winds on a footbridge. I am trying to see if the bridge that I have modeled can withstand winds up to 252 km/hr.

Are you looking to run Fluid flow analysis first and then use these results to drive your structural simulation of your bridge? If this is what you are looking for, then you should be running a Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) simulations. Please have a look at these links to understand more about the workflow involving FSI modeling.
Here is a paper available in literature on how you can model this using ANSYS mechanical and ANSYS CFX tools. I hope this helps.
If you simply planning on performing a structural simulation, please let me know and I can move this question to the 'Structural Mechanics' thread where it will receive better visibility.
