Second Garden (Second Sadovy) Bridge the Moyka River 9.21.2014

From Saint Petersburg encyclopedia:
The Second Garden Bridge (2nd Sadovy, 2-й Садовый мост) crosses the the Moyka River at the Field of Mars. In 1876, a single span iron joist bridge with trusses on cast-iron piles for a horse tramway was constructed; in 1935, it was replaced by a three span joist wooden bridge. The modern bridge was constructed in 1966-67 (engineer E.A. Boltunova, architect L.A. Noskov), with a single span triple-jointed reinforced concrete frame; the supports were faced with granite. The cast-iron railing was executed to the same pattern for the railing of the stone bridge across the Tarakanovka River by Narvsky Gate (1830s, today filled in). In 1998, it was totally renewed, the standard lamps and enclosing rails were restored. The length is 42.8 metres, the width is 20 metres.
