Located about 40 kilometers east of the famous Chishi Viaduct in Hunan Province, the Shandianjiang Bridge is yet another grand scale beam bridge on the G76 expressway, the world's greatest high bridge roadway with more then 20 beam bridges that exceed 100 meters in height.

The Shandiang gorge has a steep V-shape requiring tunnels on both ends of the 611 meter long structure. The tallest pier measures 127.6 meters and supports a main span of 200 meters. The deck is 208 meters above the old river level and several meters less from the surface of a shallow reservoir created by a small downstream dam.
