Shoulong Bridge and the ancient bridge in the village of Shangganzi is the only way on this ancient road. Shoulong Bridge across the water, about 10 meters long, about 1 meters wide, 5 meter 4 holes, it looks like a common stone bridge, but careful observation can see the "famous hall". "Instead of the common arch, the stone bridge is a mast structure, each of which is made of three long stones, each of which is a mast, and each of which is made of three long stones, which are made of children, and each of which is made of two holes in a single strip of stone, and two long stones which are made of two feet in the hole." Then put a large slate on two stone feet, like a octagonal slate lame, the whole bridge also looks like a long slate, so also called "the stool bridge." The ancient bridges are built by gravity principle of several long stones without cement mortar, only by concrete structure, and by concrete structure. The concrete structure is used in wooden construction, but it is rare to use on bridges. It is a valuable example of the transition from wood structure to stone structure in ancient China.
