Fuling Qingcaobei Yangtze River Bridge
涪陵青草背长江大桥
Fuling, Chongqing, China
(394) feet high / (120) meters high
2,585 foot span / 788 meter span
2013


The Fuling Qingcaobei Yangtze River Bridge is the third longest span across the Yangtze to be located upstream of the 3 Gorges Dam. Completed in 2013, the 788 meter suspension span uses a thin steel box deck supported by towers as tall as 183.44 meters. The most unusual design element of the bridge is the use of a cantilevered double beam span of 90+90 meters on the south end. This is the only suspension bridge in the world I know of that has a prestressed beam span for the approach span leading up to the main suspension span. Located at kilometer 49 on the Fengfu expressway, the bridge has normal approach spans of 35 meters for a total length of 1,652 meters. The deck height is approximately 100 meters to the full 3 Gorges reservoir or 120 meters to the original Yangtze River level.
