Pugugou Bridge crosses a tributary of the Yalong River in a remote region of Sichuan Province. The beam bridge was necessary to raise the level of a local road above the high water level of the reservoir formed from the giant Lianghekou Dam.

With a height of 295 meters, the Lianghekou Dam is the third highest earth fill dam in the world after the Shuangjiangkou Dam in China and the Nurek Dam in Tajikistan. Among all dams in the world it ranks 5th. The large collection of high bridges required to cross this deep Sichuan reservoir is second only to the 3 Gorges reservoir in Hubei Province. The Yalong River has many of China's highest dams including Jinping 1 and Ertan Dam, the first major concrete arch dam built in China.

Pugugou has a span configuration of 90+160+90 meters with a maximum pier height of 77 meters.

Other giant beam bridges that cross the reservoir with main spans of 190 to 200 meters include Murong, Xiatuo, Hagedagou, Zhatuo and Hongding Bridges.
