The first highway bridge connecting China and Russia over the Heilong River is ready for traffic in Heihe, Northeast China's Heilongjiang province, on Sept 20, 2020. 

The first highway bridge connecting China and Russia over the Heilong River is ready for traffic, and expected to facilitate the cross-border flow of cargo and people.

The 19.9-kilometer bridge — about one-third of which is in China — stretches from Heihe, a border city in Northeast China's Heilongjiang province, to the Russian city of Blagoveshchensk.

With an investment of 2.47 billion yuan ($362.10 million), the construction of the bridge started in December 2016 and finished at the end of 2019.

After opening to traffic, the bridge is expected to transport more than 3 million metric tons of cargo and 1.48 million passengers annually.
