One of what will eventually be an incredible 7 bridges that are in the 200 to 500 meter height range above the Beipanjiang River, the 2014 crossing is a gigantic beam viaduct with a span configuration of 118 + 220x2 + 118 meters. Despite being the "lowest" of the 7 Beipanjiang Bridge crossings, the 2014 bridge has piers that reach a skyscraping 147 meters. The bridge is also the southernmost of the Beipanjiang crossings on an expressway between Zhenfeng and Ziyun in China's Guizhou Province. The approach spans are 6x 40 and 5x 40 meters on the upper slopes of the valley.

Studies were made for higher crossings including this 300+ meter high monster suspension bridge that would have had a colossal main span of 1,800 meters. One of the towers would have been the tallest bridge structure on earth at 495 meters.

Another Beipanjiang Zhenfeng Bridge proposal was for a 200 meter high crossing with spans of 250 meters and piers as tall as 160 meters.
