The G5 is one of China's longest north-south expressways extending 2,865 kilometers between Kunming city in the south to the capital city of Beijing in the north. The stretch through Shaanxi Province has several large viaducts that break up the otherwise flat landscape of arid desert plateau that parallels China's great Yellow River.

Jinshuigou is a multi-span monster with 5 central beams of 136 meters atop piers as tall as 99 meters.

The Jinshuigou G5 expressway bridge parallels the local 2-lane Route 108 beam bridge that stands 97 meters above the creek.
