The phrase “We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it,” means we shouldn’t worry about a possible problem until it actually happens.
The phrase “water under the bridge” refers to something that happened in the past and is no longer important or worth arguing about. “We had a few problems in the past, but that’s all wáter under the bridge now.”
