Voznesensky Bridge across the Griboyedov Canal 9.21.2014
Crossing the Griboedov Canal along the route of Voznesensky Avenue, the Voznesensky Bridge (ознесенский мост) is a simple, single-span steel structure resting on granite-clad packed-rubble abutments. The bridge dates from 1958, replacing a wooden bridge dating back to the 1780s. It was designed to blend with the historic surroundings, using details from older bridges. The railings are copied from those on Italiansky Bridge, and the ornate street lamps are copied from old photographs of the original Sadovy Bridge.
