The longest concrete arch bridge on earth leaps across the Yangtze river in one span of 1,378 feet (420 mtrs). Completed in 1997, the deck is 435 feet (133 mtrs) above the old river level - considerably less if measured to the current, full reservoir level that was created by the construction of the 3 Gorges Dam.



Wanxian Yangtze River Bridge Elevation


长江之上跨越的最长的混凝土拱桥,主跨大420米。1997年建成,桥面行车道在原有河面之上133米——现在测量的话,因为三峡大坝满蓄水之后形成的水库的原因,这个距离相对会少一些。
