Golovin Bridge across the Black River 9.24.2014
Translated from Russian Wikipedia:
Golovin Bridge (ГОЛОВИНСКИЙ мост, Golovinski) crosses the Black River at the mouth of the Bolshaya Nevka in the Primorsky district of St. Petersburg. It connects the Vyborg Embankment with the Ushakovskaya waterfront.
The bridge is named for Count Golovin, whose estate was located nearby. The corner building at Vyborg Embankment house number 1 has been preserved.
A wooden bridge was built here January 19, 1817. In September 11, 1875 it was rebuilt as an odnoprolёtny bridge with wooden arched spans on stone piers. In 1948, the bridge was reconstructed by the engineer PV St. Andrew's, replacing the wooden arch bridge with steel beams. In 1976, the bridge was rebuilt again, due to a increased traffic through the Ushakovskaya Vyborg artery and embankments. Project engineers B. E. Dvorkin and AD Gutzeit, and architect VM Ivanova built a new reinforced concrete structure. The construction of the crossing is in the form of a trehsharnirnoy frame with curved shapes on the lower belt rail.
The bridge is decorated octagonal granite obelisks topped with gilded Neptune tridents and lanterns. The railing grill is simple with strict geometric patterning.
