The Fengjie Yangtze Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge which crosses the Yangtze River in Fengjie, Chongqing, China. Completed in 2005, it carries 4 lanes of traffic on the S201 provincial road. The bridges main span measures 460 metres (1,510 ft) which places it among the longest cable-stayed spans in the world.[1] The bridge was constructed 110 metres (360 ft) above the original river however the reservoir created by the Three Gorges Dam has increased the height of the water below the bridge and the clearance is vastly reduced.
