Ushakovsky Bridge across the Bolshaya Nevka River 9.24.2014
Translated from Russian Wikipedia:
The Ushakovsky bridge (УШАКОВСКИЙ мост) earlier known as the Stroganov or 2nd Stone Island Bridge crosses the Great Nevka River to connect Kamenoostrovsky avenue with Academician Krylov Street.
Originally called Stroganov Bridge, after Count Stroganov. The modern name of the bridge was awarded in memory of Admiral Ushakov.
The first floating pontoon bridge between the eastern end of Stone Island and New Village appeared in 1786 and had twelve pontoons. At the beginning of the 19th century, the bridge was replaced by a pile and moved west to align with Stroganov Street (now street Academician Krylov). This crossing was eighteen spans. The span on the left bank of the Big Nevka was a drawbridge with two wings that were raised hand winches. Between 1847 and 1853 there was built mnogoprolёtny wooden mullion-framed bridge to the swing span. The bridge was rebuilt in 1906-1907, 1911 and then again in 1935. The last renovation took place between 1953-1955 (engineers VV Demchenko, B. Levin, Architects PA Areshev, VSVasilkovskogo). In 1999-2000, during the construction of the transport interchange the right bank of the span was filled.
The bridge has 11 spans, with the central span an adjustable dvuhkryly sliding-open system. The rest are covered spans continuous beam with curved outline zones (six side - zhelezobetononnymi trёhproletnymi, four channel - metal dvuhprolёtnymi).
The bridge piers are faced with granite. The iron railings of the bridge are decorated with ornaments with the composition of anchors, stars, oak and laurel wreaths, made in the style of "Stalinist" classicism. Decorated columns, in the same style, stand in pairs at each of the bridge entrances.
