The bridge, a colossal cable-supported viaduct with a span of 2,135 meters, will serve as a major connection on the Pingtang-Luodian Expressway above the Caodu River Canyon.

The bridge will be completed and open to traffic by the end of 2019, shortening the travel time between Pingtang and Luodian from two and a half hours to around one hour.
