The highest bridge on Hunan Province's G72 expressway, the Mi River Bridge crosses a deep, V-shaped gorge between 2 mountain tunnels.
Construction of the two separate viaducts was achieved by a 710 meter long highline that was anchored on the mountain tops on either side of the canyon at elevation points 837 and 811 meters above a river level of just 500 meters. The bridge has an overall length of 541 meters and a maximum pier height of 143 meters. A temporary footbridge was also built to assist construction workers with a span of 173 meters.
