The Mengdong River Bridge at Yongshun is a prestressed beam bridge most notable for an asymmetrical design with the west side span considerably shorter then the east side span. The bridge bypasses a much lower bridge that connects G209 with S230. The new high level crossing bypasses the city of Yongshun located 2 kilometers to the north.

The uneven span configuration is 60+160+100 +46 meters. The two main piers are 75 and 23 meters tall.

The giant Mengdong arch bridge on the new S10 Zhangjiajie to Huayuan Expressway is located several kilometers to the south and is one of the highest arch bridges in the world at 232 meters.
