The highest footbridge in Hubei Province, the Shimenhe Glass Footbridge is one of several high crossings that have been built in the Gaopingzhen region. The first was the Yesanhe arch bridge that opened in 1977 and became the first bridge in China to surpass 100 meters in height. That was followed in later years by the Yesanhe G50 Expressway Bridge, the Yesanhe Railway Bridge and the Yesanhe Pipeline Bridge as well as a local 2-lane arch bridge across the Shimen River sometime around 2015.

The Shimenhe gorge has several other lower level footbridges that cross the Shimen River and plans have been shown for a glass elevator to take tourists directly down to the cliffwalks that line the river canyon.
