The second highest road bridge in China upon its completion in 1977 at 400 feet (122 mtrs) after the Tiesuo Bridge, the Yesanhe road bridge is now one of 4 bridges that cross the gorge within view of each other including a higher railway bridge and two pipeline bridges. A fifth crossing and the highest of all came in 2009 when the West Hurong highway opened several miles away with a prestressed concrete beam bridge 689 feet (210 mtrs) above the Yesanhe River gorge.


1997年建成成为中国第一高度的122米高的野三河公路桥,是现有三座跨越野三河的大桥之一,而且这三座桥可以相互遥望,另外两座分别说更高的野三河铁路桥,和较低的管线桥。2009年,就在几英里开外的沪蓉西高速通车后,野三河上将会有第四座高桥,高达210米高的野三河公路桥。
