Utkin Bridge across the Okkervil River 9.25.2014

Translated from Russian Wikipedia:
The Utkin Pedestrian Bridge (УТКИН мост) spans the Okkervil River at its confluence with the Big Ohta in the Krasnogvardeyskiy district of St. Petersburg. Originally a wooden bridge, it connected the Utkin route with Republican street. It was closed in 1979 and rebuilt as a pedestrian passage. The bridge is 16 m long and is 9 m wide. The iron railing is a simple pattern.

Prior to 1958, part of the State Street from Kinoveevskogo Avenue (now - Shaumyana Avenue) to the Okkervil River, was called Utkin street. The name of the bridge dates back to the middle of the 19th century. The name of the street, and later the bridge comes from a local conciliator VI Utkin, who settled conflicts between peasants and landowners.
