Yangjiawu #1 & #2 Bridges are two of three nearly equal sized beam bridges along the Xigou River canyon just a kilometer apart on the spectacular G42 expressway near Wushan City in the 3 Gorges region of the Yangtze River. The other beam span is the Jiaoziping Bridge.

The stretch of the G42 expressway west of Wushan in Chongqing Province was completed in 2009 while the eastern stretch of the G42 in Hubei Province opened in 2013. Both Jiaoziping and Yangjiawu #2 Bridges were completed in early 2012 but did not open to traffic until 2013.

The two viaducts are 420 and 450 meters long with a main span configuration of 87+150+83 meters.
