Chuanba Bridge is a 111 meter high concrete arch with a span of 140 meters that crosses a deep canyon near the Guizhou/Yunnan border at the west end of the Anpan Expressway.

The bridge is one of several spectacular high level crossings on the amazing Anpan Expressway that cuts across an extremely mountainous section of Guizhou Province between Panzhou near the Guizhou/Yunnan border and Anshun in Guizhou Province. The Anpan is the only expressway in the world to have five bridges that exceed 300 meters in height including Liuchehe, Tianmen, Guniuhe, Wumengshan and Liuzhi Bridges.

The Liuchehe and Guniuhe Bridges rank as the two highest arch bridges in the world with road decks over 400 meters high. The Tianmen suspension bridge is the third crossing of the Beipan River to exceed 500 meters in height.
