Mostly submerged under the huge 3 Gorges reservoir, the Shennongxi River bridge cuts across one of the Yangtze River’s largest tributaries near Badong. A simple 3 span concrete beam bridge, the Shennongxi’s western pier is 295 feet (90 mtrs) high. The nearby Badong Yangtze cable stayed bridge is the closest downstream crossing to the 3 Gorges dam.


被巨大的三峡库区吞没了大多数桥墩的神农溪大桥,跨越了长江的在巴东附近的干流之一。一座简单的三跨混凝土梁桥,神农溪大桥西桥墩有90米高。附近的巴东长江大桥(斜拉桥)是上游最接近三峡大坝的长江大桥。
