2017


Mengdonghe Bridge Yongji is the highest span on the north-south Longshan-Yongshun-Jishou expressway. The 4-lane route is loaded with at least 10 beam bridges that exceed 100 meters in height making it one of Hunan's more impressive mountain highways.

The 268 meter span Mengdonghe arch bridge is located approximately 10 kilometers south of the Mengdonghe arch bridge on the Zhangjiajie expressway. Like all good "sequels", the newer Mengdonghe crossing is slightly larger with a span 13 meters longer then the 2013 original. The CFST concrete filled steel tubular span has a span configuration of 3x30+268+6x30 meters.
