Jiangkai Bridge
Shibing, Guizhou, China
(410) feet high / (125) meters high
(328) foot span / (100) meter span

There is little information on the height or span length of this 2-lane road bridge in eastern Guizhou Province. The location is almost picture perfect with near vertical cliffs dropping hundreds of feet into the deep chasm of the Jiang Kai River.

The bridge was constructed using many rows of Bailey-type truss supports that supported the concrete ribs before they hardened and could be removed.

The main concrete arch was constructed on top of a series of temporary truss ribs that were removed upon completion of the bridge.
