The bridge connects the two expressways of Trung Luong – My Thuan and My Thuan - Can Tho in order to form a complete traffic network from Ho Chi Minh City to Can Tho

It will cost VND5 trillion (US$216 million) sourced from the State budget and is expected to be completed in 2023.

The six-lane bridge has a total length of 6.61 km, including the 1.9km-long bridge and two approach roads with total length of over 4.7km./..
