One of several large beam bridges on the Zunchi highway between Zunyi and the Chishuihe River, the Guanzhai Bridge crosses a beautiful valley of tiered farm paddies. The location is north of Erlangxiang just before the expressway junctions with the Xugu expressway to Sichuan Province near the giant Chishuihe Chajiaotan suspension bridge.

The prestressed T-beam frame bridge has a main span of 150 meters flanked by two side spans of 80 meters supported on piers 94 and 102 meters tall.

The 4-lane Zunchi highway has several other large beam bridges including Tongzihe and Eralanghe which have piers that rank among the tallest in the world.
