World’s Highest Bridge Opens to Traffic in Remote China

The Beipanjiang Bridge, located near Bijie in southwest China’s Guizhou province recently opened to traffic. The world’s highest bridge connects the two southwestern provinces of Yunnan and Guizhou. The 4,400-foot-long Beipanjiang bridge has a height equivalent to a 200-story skyscraper. Construction on the bridge spanning the Beipanjiang Valley began in 2013. The two sides were connected in September 2016. With the new bridge in place, travel time between the two provinces has been reduced by 75 percent.
