The 4,589-meter-long structure reopened after 27 months of repairs. As China’s first home-designed road and rail truss bridge, it has been p

Liu Yong, 63, a retired teacher from Nanjing, said he was in elementary school when the bridge first op

Zhou Lei, who lives in a residential community near the bridge, said that when he was an elementary school student in Ya
ncheng, Jiangsu, his father promised him that he would take him to see the bridge if he had high scores in his final exam.
