The Yichang Yangtze River Highway Bridge (simplified Chinese: 宜昌长江公路大桥; traditional Chinese: 宜昌長江公路大橋; pinyin: Yíchāng Changjiang Gonglu Dàqiáo) is a suspension bridge that crosses the Yangtze River some 20 km downstream from the center city of Yichang, China. It is located within the prefecture-level city of Yichang, and carries the G50 Shanghai–Chongqing Expressway. The bridge was essentially designed to be extremely similar in appearance to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
The cost of building the bridge was reported as 895 million yuan.
