The reinforced concrete slab of the span of the bridge is solid. The bridge abutments are a prefabricated monolithic high-pile raft foundation. On the left bank side of the Bypass channel the granite grade is sloped to drain water.
The roadway and sidewalks are coated with asphalt. The sidewalk is separated from the roadway with a metal fence barrier type. A granite curb separates the sidewalk from the roadway. The railing on the bridge is steel welded simple design 1.1 m high.
The bridge is designed according to the norms of SNIP 2.05.03-84 * load A11, SC-80, and the load on the sidewalks is 400 kg / m².
The bridge is 26.4 m long, and 21.8 m wide between the railings. The axis of the bridge runs at an angle of 86 ° to the axis of the channel. The carriageway width is 16.5 m (four lanes 3.75 m and a safety strip of 0.75 m). The sidewalks are 2.25 m.
