There are more then a dozen high beam bridges on the new Fengfu expressway that skirts along the east side of the Yangtze River gorge in Chongqing Province but there is no question which one is the king of them all. With a gargantuan central span of 240 meters, the Longhe Bridge dominates the large river that makes up the northern border of central Fengdu city.

The span configuration is 10x40 +127+240+127 +7x40 meters. The deep waters of the 3 Gorges reservoir hide much of the true height of the span which is 180 meters to the original river level.
