Borisov Bridge across the Bypass Canal 9.22.2014

Translated from Russian Wikipedia:
The Borisov Bridge (Борисов мост) is a pedestrian bridge over the Bypass canal, which connects the industrial left and right banks of the Bypass channel opposite the entrance to the RTI factory. The bridge was built for factory workers. It's name is derived from homeowner and merchant Borisov, who once owned two large houses on the waterfront.

At the end of the nineteenth century a wooden girder footbridge was built here on pile supports. In 1928 major repairs of the bridge were executed. The existing bridge was built from 1988-1989 under the project development engineer VI Feldman and architect V. Ivanov.

The bridge is an Odnoprolёtny design metal bridge. The span is in the form of two metal beams of I-section with a curved outline on the lower belt. The top spans are overlapped prefabricated reinforced concrete slabs. The bridge is 33.1 m long and 3 m wide. The bridge deck is asphalt. The iron railing are a simple design. A granite parapet sits upon the bridge foundation.
