The bridge design is a single pylon tower centered in the river, with two deck spans, one on each side of the tower. That results in two parallel bridge spans help up by a single set of cables, with each span the same length on each side of the tower. The cable arrangement is unique in that the cables do not attache to the main tower. Rather, the cables loop through the towers, and attach only at the bridge deck. Several smaller cable stayed bridges are now using this technique, but this is the pioneering structure to attempt such a design.
To show off the bridge's signature status, it is constructed with glass panels that run the full height of the center tower. These panels contains thousands of LED lights. The light panels are used to give night time light shows.
