I saw the foundations for this pipeline bridge under construction in late 2008. Crossing in front of the classic concrete arch road bridge from 1977, this is the second high pipeline bridge to span the Yesanhe in the same vicinity. If you include the highway bridge several miles away, the Gaopingzhen area now has 5 high crossings of the deep Yesanhe River gorge. The side spans are 58 and 34 meters for a total length of 1,089 feet (332 mtrs). The deck is 4.5 meters wide.


2008年下半年时,我来中国看到了这座管线桥的基础部分正在施工。就正好位于1977建成的经典混凝土拱桥前面不远跨过河谷,这是野三河这一段内第二座很高的管线桥了。如果把数英里之外的公路桥也计算进来,高坪镇地区现在就有5座很高的桥梁跨越野三河峡谷。
