Despite difficulties in terms of the construction site, weather and geological conditions, the bridge was completed on schedule with technical standards met, and put into use on January 19, 2018. It has helped improve the road conditions and ensure safety for people in Co Nghia as well as the communes of Lien Hoa, An Lac, Dong Mon and Hung Thi, thus contributing to the building of new-style rural areas.

Among the three suspension bridges it built in Lac Thuy district, two are in Hung Thi commune and were opened to traffic in August 2017. They were built at a total cost of 18 billion VND (782,100 USD), funded by a project on building 186 suspension bridges in 28 northern mountainous provinces.

At the ceremony, the Hoang Son company presented 60 million VND (about 2,600 USD) to the local funds for study encouragement and the poor.
