The highest bridge across China's famous Yellow River, the Hukou Huang (Yellow) He (River) crossing is another epic viaduct with an impressive set of piers that support 3 spans of 175 meters.

Located in the arid northwestern region of China’s Shanxi province along the new East-West G22 Qinglan expressway, the side by side beam spans measure 757 meters in length. The 4 giant piers are 59, 143, 146 and 80 meters tall.
