Wuchahe Bridge
五岔河特大桥
Renhuai, Guizhou, China
(755) feet high / (230) meters high
591 foot span / 180 meter span
2013


Another high Chinese crossing on the Renchi expressway, the Wuchahe Bridge looks precarious above a steep, V-shaped gorge 30 kilometers north of Renhuai City. The 135 and 145 meter piers are unusual for having no cross connections between the inside of the pier slabs. Nearby Erlanghe has similar sized piers but there are 3 connections within the pier shafts. Computer modeling along with soil and rock surveys must have shown the entire structure to be on solid ground to allow the piers to be more open. The main span configuration is 96+180+96 meters with 40 meter approach spans for a total length of 939.4 and 811.2 meters long.
