Aizigou Bridge is one of several big beam crossings on the 2-lane access road that was built from Hulukouzhen to the Baihetan Dam. One of the tallest concrete dams in the world at 277 meters, Baihetan created a lake over 200 kilometers long on the Jinshajiang River. Baihetan will also be the 2nd largest power generating station in the world.

In 2012 a huge slide along Aizigou creek wiped out a Baihetan Dam worker campsite, killing 42 people.
