Although not as spectacular as the world's highest cable stayed bridge across the Beipanjiang at Duge, the Wang'an Expressway Beipanjiang Bridge is still an impressive structure with 190.4 meter towers supporting a central span configuration of 150+328+150 meters with 30 meter approach spans. The two main towers are 190.4 and 187.9 meters tall with a total length of the bridge being 817 meters. The main span cable stays are spaced 7 meters apart with spacing of 5 meters for the side spans. The whole width of the deck is 24.1 meters.

Much of the bridge height is hidden beneath the Longtan reservoir created by the completion of a downstream dam in 2008. Just north of the Wang'an expressway Bridge is a high beam bridge that carries the older route S312 over the Bei Pan River. Before the construction of the dam, route S312 crossed a multi-arch bridge. Located at kilometer 20, the S62 Yuqing-Anlong Expressway connects the cities of Anlong and Wangmo in remote southwestern Guizhou Province.
