The Hetou No. 1 bridge is one of several giant beam bridges on the new highway that connects Liupanshui with the G60 near the Guizhou/Yunnan border. The tight canyon is so steep the crossing required no approach spans on the west side. The main span configuration is 70+ 120+ 70 meters with 28 approach spans of 30 meters for a total length of 1,106 meters. Further west is nearby Hetou No. 2 Bridge with 10 more spans of 30 meters.

The bridge is located at kilometer 13 which is 17 kilometers east of the giant Beipanjiang 2012 Bridge crossing.
