Yangbaoshan Bridge is the first 6-lane bridge in the world to exceed 300 meters in height. The steel truss stiffened suspension bridge crosses the upper reaches of the Qingshui River in central Guizhou Province on a more direct east-west expressway that connects Guiyang with the cities of Longchangzhen, Jiuhouzhen and Huangping. The deck is approximately 320 meters above a reservoir or 360 meters above the original river level.

The lower leg of the 186.5 meter tall west tower measures 110.7 meters below the deck making it a unique "suspension-bridge-on-stilts". There are only 6 other suspension bridges in the world with tower piers that exceed 100 meters below deck including Sunxihe, Qingshuihe, Honghe Bridge Jianyuan, Dahe, Malinghe Fenglin and Tiger Leaping Railway.

The span configuration of the 1,112 meter long Yangbaoshan Bridge is 5x40 +650 +6x40 meters.

Equally spectacular is the Ganxi arch-beam bridge located just 3 kilometers to the south on a spur expressway that connects to the G75 expressway. Also on the route 50 kilometers to the east is the beautiful red Wumeihe arch bridge with a span of 300 meters and a reported height of 223 meters.
