Kolomyazhsky Overpass across the Black River 9.28.2014
Translated from Russian Wikipedia:
Kolomyazhsky overpass (Коломяжский путепровод) is a viaduct which spans the Black river in alignment with Kolomyazhsky Prospect, in the Primorsky district of St. Petersburg.
The first bridge across the Black river in alignment with Kolomyazhsky Prospect, appeared in 1838. It was a trёhprolёtny metal bridge on wooden poles. It was originally called Cartage, and then changed to the 2nd Chernorechenskaya, and finally named Kolomyazhsky. The bridge stood until 1986, when it was replaced by a reinforced concrete odnoprolёtny span.
In 2011 the three lane Kolomyazhsky overpass was built and the Kolomyazhsky Bridge was dismantled, to create an artery that could handle more traffic and to eliminate the grade level crossing of the Sestroretskaya line on the October Railway. Reconstruction included new embankments on both sides of the Black River. On 15 May 2014 the span was officially named Kolomyazhsky Overpass.
