Translated from Russian Wikipedia:
The Malookhtinsky Bridge (МАЛООХТИНСКИЙ мост) crosses the Okhta River in alignment with the Malookhtinsky waterfront on the Neva River. The bridge got its name in 1984 by analogy with the nearby Bolsheokhtinsky bridge over the Neva River.
In 1982 the Neva River right bank embankment was reconstructed, from the mouth of the Okhta River bridge Alexander Nevsky bridge. These plans included the construction of a new bridge across the Okhta that would directly link the two parts of the reconstructed embankment, and to improve the connectivity of the road network.
Construction of the bridge was completed in 1984. The bridge was named Malookhtinsky. Convenient transport interchanges were arranged on both sides of the bridge. The bridge was designed by engineers AD Gutzeit, RR Shilov, and architect V. Ivanov.
