World’s longest glass bridge opens in China

China opened the world’s longest glass bridge at the end of 2017.

Located in the Hongyagu Scenic Area, the glass bridge is 1,600 feet long and 13 feet wide. It hangs 715 feet above the valley and connects two steep cliffs.

The country doesn’t lack fancy bridges. Here’s a list of new bridge projects we’ve covered in 2017:
