The second highest of two large arch bridges on the Gui-Bi highway between Guiyang and Bijie, the Xixi Gangou is a concrete truss-arch bridge with a deck 361 feet (110 mtrs) high. The 2-lane toll road has one of the greatest collections of high bridges in the world including Liuguanghe, the world’s highest beam bridge and Xixi and Luojiaohe, two of the world’s higher suspension bridges. The Xixi suspension bridge is located just a mile east of the Xixi Gangou arch.


从贵阳到毕节的贵毕公路上第二高度的大跨度拱桥,西溪干沟大桥是一座混凝土桁架拱桥,桥面高度110米高。这条2车道的收费公路是世界上最大的高桥集中地之一,其上有着世界最高的梁桥六广河大桥,位居世界上最高的悬索桥中两座——西溪和落脚河悬索桥。西溪悬索桥就在西溪干沟拱桥东侧一英里处。
