One of the largest cable stayed bridges in either Guizhou or Guanxi Provinces, the Hongshuihe Bridge traverses over a deep reservoir from the Longtan dam located 65 kilometers downstream. With a central span of 508 meters, the engineers were able to cross the lake with no underwater piers. This required towers 195 meters tall supporting a configuration of 2x20 +213+508+185 meters. The total length of the bridge is 956 meters and is located at kilometer 113 on the Huiluo Expressway.
