Wumeihe Bridge is one of the highest 6-lane bridges in China with a deck 192 meters high along a more direct east-west expressway between Guiyang City and Huangping in eastern Guizhou Province.

The red arch is composed of a concrete filled steel tubular CFST rib that is common throughout China due to the ease of building the span from a highline. The large steel tubes that run along the underside of the arch were initially hollow. Once the arch was closed, concrete was pumped into these tubes from the bottom up. First used by the Chinese in 1990, they have refined and improved the technique.

Located 50 kilometers to the west on the same expressway is the Yangbaoshan suspension bridge with a height of 360 meters and a span of 650 meters.
