Located several kilometers upstream of the city of Sinan, the Wujiang Sinan Bridge is the first of two high bridges that were built near Sinan. The second is the massive Wujiang Bridge of Sinan City that crosses 160 meters above the river downstream of the city on the G56 Hangrui expressway. The two bridges are just 8 kilometers apart.

Despite the Wujiang Bridge Yanrong not being as long or as massive as the Wujiang Sinan Viaduct, the 2013 structure is higher at 195 meters.

The large main span of 220 meters is perched atop piers 118 and 109 meters tall. The slightly offset but parallel spans cross the river at a skew resulting in uneven total lengths of 1,050 and 1,175 meters.

The Wujiang River and its upper tributaries have the second greatest collection of high bridges on earth after the Beipanjiang River.
