Xisujiaohe Bridge is the largest CFST concrete filled steel tubular arch crossing on the amazing G4216 Yanjiang Expressway 沿江高速Yibin to Panzhihua Expressway in Sichuan Province. The route has Sichuan's largest collection of high level bridges.

The lower third of the Xisujiaohe Bridge is hidden below a portion of the Jinshajiang reservoir that was formed by the giant Xiluodu Dam. The 565 meter long Xisujiaohe Bridge has a span configuration of 3x30 +380 +3x30 meters with a main arch span of 350 meters. The deck of the Xisujiaohe Bridge is 195 meters above the full reservoir level that was formed by the construction of the Xiluodu Dam.

The route is also unique for having more large span arch bridges than any other highway on earth with a total of seven. These massive concrete and CFST arches include Xi'ninghe, Dahegou, Shangwujiao, Xisujiaohe, Yuewulada, Liutonghe and Daheba Bridges.

The G4216 Expressway parallels much of the Jinshajiang reservoir that was formed by the giant Xiluodu Dam. With a height of 285.5 meters, Xiluodu is among the 5 tallest concrete dams in the world and is located on the border of Sichuan and Yunnan Provinces 50 kilometers downstream from the Jinshajiang Bridge Kahaluo.
