Liuzhi Bridge is the largest arch-beam hybrid cantilevered beam bridge in the world and the 3rd largest viaduct ever built with three back-to-back main spans of 320 meters on piers as tall as 177 meters. These unique arch-beam hybrid spans allowed Chinese engineers to push beam spans beyond the previous limits of 265 meters to 300 meters and beyond. The signature look of the unusual "open window" design is less bulky then a solid wall and the greater beam curve gives the structure a beauty more associated with arch bridges.

Among all viaducts in the world, only the Millau and Pingtang Bridges are larger.

The 6-lane Liuzhi Bridge is the king of the mountainous Naqing Expressway between Nayong and Qinglong in Western Guizhou Province.

Other spectacular high bridges on the route include the Zangkejiang suspension bridge and the Baishuihe and Azhihe arch bridges.
