The World’s Highest Bridge Set To Open in China This Year

The bridge spans 2,362 feet between mountains, 1,854 feet above the Beipan River.

The Beipanjiang Bridge in China—which hangs over 1,800 feet above a river—completed construction on Saturday, the Guizhou provincial transport department announced in a statement.

 The bridge spans 2,362 feet between mountains, 1,854 feet above the Beipan River.

The previous record holder was the Si Du River bridge. It crossed a valley in the Hubei province and hung 1,627 feet above ground.

Beipanjing Bridge is expected to open later this year and will be used mostly by automobiles. It is expected to make travel from the Guizhou to Yunnan provinces nearly twice as fast.
