Komarovski Bridge across the Okhta River 9.25.2014

Translated from Russian Wikipedia:
The Komarovsky Bridge (КОМАРОВСКИЙ мост) crosses the Ohta River in St. Petersburg in line with the Bolsheokhtinsky bridge over the Neva River, connecting it with Krasnogvardeyskaya area.

There has been an adjustable wooden bridge here, since the 18th century. Originally called the Harbaty Bridge, it was renamed Komarovsky, in the first quarter of the 19th century, after the name of a neighboring cloth factory owner. The bridge was remodeled in 1911 and again in 1943. During the renovation the wooden drawbridge span was replaced with steel beams on wooden poles.

The modern bridge was built in 1960, by project engineer VV Zaitsev, BB Levin and architect LA Noskov. The bridge has reinforced concrete spans and a two-pair frame on reinforced concrete supports. The support and front plane spans are faced with granite. The bridge length is 72.7 m, and it is 47 m wide. It supports 8 lanes of traffic (4 in both directions), plus two tram tracks. There are protected sidewalks to either side of the bridge.
