Large Il'inskii Bridge (Okhtinsky Bridge No. 3) across the Okhta River (with Elijah Orthodox Church in the background) 9.25.2014

Translated from Russian Wikipedia:
The Large Il'inskii Bridge (Okhtinsky Bridge No. 3, Большой Ильинский мост) crosses the Okhta River at the junction of Elijah Sloboda to Highway Revolution. It is the oldest remaining bridge of cast-in-situ reinforced concrete in St. Petersburg. The bridge was designed by the architect Henry Girshsona Antonovich in 1912, on the site of the former wooden bridge. In 1950 it received enhanced support; and in 1964 sidewalks were brought to the console.

Between 2001 - 2002 there was an overhaul of the bridge. The project provided for preservation of the old bridge (with small changes) and construction of a second bridge upstream for adding another traffic lane. The continuous composite beam deck repeats the layout and shape of the old bridge. The project has been approved by the Scientific Council of St. Petersburg for Cultural Heritage Preservation.
