Gangou Bridge
干沟大桥
Dafang, Guizhou, China
380 feet high / 116 meters high
443 foot span / 135 meter span
2001


Gangou is the highest of the two large arch bridges on the Gui-Bi highway that opened in 2001 between Guiyang and Bijie. The two lane toll road has one of the greatest collections of high bridges in the world including Liuguanghe, the world’s highest beam bridge and Xixi and Luojiaohe, two of the world’s higher suspension bridges.

Gangou is a fairly conventional concrete arch bridge with a main span of 443 feet (135 mtrs) and two small side spans. The deep, V-shaped gorge offers spectacular views of a dry river canyon in a remote region of Guizhou province. Just a mile or so west of Gangou is the 600 foot (183 mtr) high Luojiaohe suspension bridge.


干沟大桥是2001年开通的贵阳至毕节的贵毕公路上的两座特大拱桥中最高的一座。这条双车道公路上有着世界上最庞大数量群的高桥,包裹世界最高的梁桥六广河大桥以及两座很高的悬索桥西溪大桥、落脚河大桥。

干沟大桥是一座相当普通的混凝土拱桥,主跨135米以及两个边孔。其下深深的V字形峡谷,呈现出贵州省西北偏远地区的一条干枯河谷的雄浑之景。就在干沟大桥以西大概一英里处就是183米高的落脚河悬索桥。
