Hezhang BridgeByGeomeng.jpg


Located near the city of the same name in northwestern Guizhou Province, the giant Hezhang Bridge is one for the record books with a central pier 195 meters high from base to cap. Only the Millau Viaduct and Mexico's San Marcos bridge have taller piers. The gargantuan super pier supports two main spans of 180 meters with a configuration of 9×40 +96+2×180+96 +5×30 meters. A cable stayed design with a span of 322 meters was studied but passed in favor of the double beam span design.
