Being kicked off in July 2009, the Dragon Bridge has a total length of 666 meters and 37.5 meters in width, with six lanes. The total investment is more than VND1.7 trillion (around $85 million). The dragon simulates the shape of the dragon in the Ly Dynasty, which flies to the East Sea with steel spans totaling 568 meters in length and nearly 9,000 tons in weight. This is the architecturally unique bridge designed by the Louis Berger Group (USA). It is also the only the bridge with single steel arch design in Southeast Asia at present.
