Located within Guiyang city in the mountainous Guizhou province, the Xiaoguanshuiku Viaduct is a bonus high bridge for those who will be setting out to visit even higher bridges on the G76, G60 and elsewhere in Guizhou Province. There are great views of the bridge from a road that goes directly under the highest span as well as from a steep trail of steps on a hill next to the east side of the bridge. A sidewalk on the north side also affords beautiful views of the Xiaoguan reservoir created from a small dam beneath the bridge. Construction began in 2010 on a new highway that will run along the river and pass directly underneath the east side of the Xiaoguanshuiku Viaduct. In 2010 Qianling Bridge became the second large highway beam bridge to cross the valley 1 kilometer to the south. In 2012 a metro rail line bridge opened between Xiaoguanshuiku and Qianling. Finally in 2012 yet another large beam bridge opened 1 kilometer to the north with a deck some 100 meters high.

The main span configuration of Xiaoguanshuiku is 69 +125 +160 +160 +112 meters with approach spans of 40 meters and a total length of 1,043.3 meters.

The span configuration of Qianling Bridge 黔灵大桥 is 110+ 2× 190+ 110 meters with piers 59 and 41 meters tall.


地处贵州省山区的贵阳市北,小关水库大桥将是那些启程前往深处中国西部的毕节公路上探访更高桥梁的路途中的意外收获。从正好在大桥最高的一跨底下通过的公路上可以看到该桥的全景,也可以站在该桥东侧的小山的台阶上看到诸多美景。大桥西侧的边上人行道上还可以看到桥下的一个小水库形成的人工湖的秀色。
