China Unveils World’s Longest Bridge At 17 Miles

Would you cross the world's longest bridge?


Are you ready for an exciting new experience? An experience that involves… oh, I don’t know.. maybe.. bridges? In that case, welcome to the longest bridge over water in the world.

China’s Jiaozhou Bay Bridge is nearly 17 miles long. It connects the city of Qingdao to the smaller Huangdao district. Guinness World Records lists the bridge as the longest “aggregate-length” bridge in the world. Because the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in Louisiana is still the longest “continuous” bridge.

The bridge opened to the public in 2012. It may have cost as much as $9 billion to build. So if you’re here for the kind of excitement that only crossing an unbelievably long bridge can bring, then I have good news. You have just read the perfect story for you.
