The Linjiang Yalu River Bridge

The Linjiang Yalu River Bridge (Chinese: 临江国际大桥) is a bridge over the Yalu River, connecting Linjiang City of Baishan City, Jilin Province, China, with Chunggang County, Chagang Province, North Korea.[1] It was built by the Japanese in 1938 and Linjiang Border Post is located there. A little downstream from the bridge is Yunfeng Dam.

During the Korean War, it was one of the border posts from which the Chinese People's Volunteer Army entered North Korea.[2]
