Donggou Bridge is a beautiful polygon truss-arch located on an upgraded section of the 2-lane route G319. The Dong creek crossing is located just a kilometer across from the spectacular Wulingshan cable stayed bridge along the G65 Expressway.

Opened in 2009, the G65 Chongqing-Hunan Expressway is a 4-lane highway that connects the city and municipality of Chongqing with Hunan Province. Roughly following the path of the Wujiang River, the route is one more “spoke” in a hub of highways that radiate out from Chongqing - the largest inland river port and western China’s most populous city. Threading through the rugged and spectacular Wujiang River gorge, the highway traverses several high tributaries near the city of Pengshui.
