The Hangzhou Bay Bridge
The construction of Hangzhou Bay Bridge commenced on November 14, 2003, and was completed on June 26, 2007. Shortly after on May 1, 2008, the bridge connecting municipalities of Jiaxing and Ningbo in Zhejiang province was open to the public. The bridge stretches 36 km (22 mi) in length, and held the longest bridge in the world at the time of its completion. Even up to this day, the Hangzhou Bay Bridge ranks third in length, after American Lake Pontchartrain Causeway and Qingdao Jiaozhou Bay Bridge.
