This paper introduces the design of a prestressed concrete continuous rigid frame bridge with V-shape piers built in Shijiazhuang city, China. The model and structural shape of this bridge were stated considering the factors such as hydrology, environment, artistic display and construction technology. The V-shape piers in main elevations combining the changed sections and larger hanged roof of box-girder gave out the lively and attractive views of whole bridge. The design software MIDAS/Civil was applied to build the numerical model for analyzing the static properties of the bridge structure. The results show that the loading performances of the bridge meet the specifications of current Chinese design codes. The bridge has been constructed and operated since Jan. 2010, which is becoming a main linkage between city and outskirts, and a landscape of the Taiping River Park of the city.
