Yantou River Bridge is located at 213 km along the 304 provincial highway near Sinan, Guizhou. An asymmetrical prestressed beam bridge with a main span of 128 meters, the Yantou River is under a reservoir where the bridge crosses it. The tallest pier is nearly 100 meters high. My estimated height of 120 meters is to the old river level. Construction started on November 26, 2008 with successful closure on November 28, 2010 and an official opening ceremony in January of 2011. The total length is 281 meters with a width of 9.5 meters.
