I don't know why not.  As for the connection between the rails, this is from the Gargraves FAQ.

Fast Track to GarGraves: Use Lionel item no. 6-12040 and GarGraves O Gauge Mating pins item # 801.

Fastrack ties are nearly scale while Gargraves ties are greatly oversized. While not a problem visually when using either track I think putting the two together would clash, especially since it's a bridge and you won't be able to use ballast to blend the two.

You bring up an interesting point here: how can Fastrack users have bridges without ballast?

I am using a Lionel Fastrack trestle set and will (#getaroundtoit) conceal the Fastrack ballast with horizontal timbers to mimic a bridge deck but that will be kind of  simplistic and schematic.

The differences in tie width and spacing looks OK to me. I was concerned it would stick out like. sore thumb but, not so much.
