Taking the curved continuous rigid frame bridges (CRFBs) with high piers as research object, the construction stability of four different styles of main piers were analyzed by finite element (FE) method in three construction stages including the segment 0 stage, largest cantilever stage, and finished bridge stage. Rules governing the stabilities of bridges with various pier styles, height, and slenderness ratio were established. At different construction stages, pier type and pier height affect structural stability differently. Wind loads have little influence on structural stability at any construction stage, and accidental events influence the stability of bridges more than normal construction loads. There is a nonlinear power relationship of fixed functional type between the stability safety factor (SSF) and slenderness ratio in all four pier styles; this power relationship can be used to predict the stability of a new pier.
