In 1909, the Japanese invaders plundered China and built the bridge on the Yalu River, which was completed in 1911. In 1943, the Japanese built a second bridge of the same type on the upper reaches of the bridge. During the period of China's War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea, the two bridges became the main road connecting China and North Korea. During this period, the US military cut the Chinese army supply line. On November 8, 1950, the bridge was blown off by the US military and was called the Yalu River Broken Bridge.
