Doushanba Bridge
陡山坝特大桥
Shiguxiang, Guizhou, China
522 feet high / 159 meters high

Doushanba is the second biggest and highest beam bridge on the Anjiang Expressway between Weng'an and the Jiangkou Expressway. The main span of 150 meters is fairly average for a bridge this size but the central pier is one of the tallest in central Guizhou with a shaft dropping 145 meters to the valley floor.

Several kilometers west is the even larger and higher Kaixiahe Bridge with a main span of 220 meters across a canyon 220 meters deep.
