Liuguanghe Bridge Xiqian
息黔高速公路六广河特大桥
Liutongxiang, Guizhou, China
1,230 feet high / 375 meters high
1,903 foot span / 580 meter span
2017


The second highest and longest span bridge ever built over the great Wujiang River, the Liuguanghe Bridge is also one of the tallest with the west pier stretching 248 meters into the sky.

The Xiqian expressway bypasses the older 2-lane Guibi Road that opened in 2001 and connected Qianxi with the G75 expressway. The newer route also allowed a more direct connection with the cities of Xifeng and Kaifeng.

The giant main span of 580 meters is most notable for the short back spans that required the higher cable stays to be bundled more closely together. Like many giant spans that cross the Wu River, Liuguanghe Bridge crosses a reservoir from a downstream dam that can vary the height from 328 meters when the lake is full to as high as 375 meters if measured down to the original level of the Wujiang River.

作为乌江上第二高也是第二大桥,六广河高速公路桥也是桥塔最高的桥之一,西桥塔高248米。

息黔高速公路取代了2001年修建的贵毕公路,将黔西县和G75兰海高速连接起来。新高速也使黔西、息烽、开阳之间有更便捷的交通要道。

该桥主跨580米,引人注目的是边跨较短。和乌江上许多其它高桥一样,此桥跨越一个水库,当水库满水位时,桥面距离水面高328米;距离原始水面高375米。
