New-Kalinkin (Novo-Kalinkin) Bridge across the Bypass Canal 9.22.2014

Translated from Russian Wikipedia:
The New Kalinkin bridge (Ново-Калинкин мост) crosses the Bypass channel at Staro-Peterhof Prospect in St. Petersburg. The bridge got its name from the small Finnish village, that existed here in the 17th century. The name is interpreted two ways: on some old maps it is Kalyula, and on others it is Cullin. In the early years of St. Petersburg, the village name converted to the Russian style, and it became known Kalinkina. The village name is imprinted in the name of Old Kalinkin Bridge across the Fontanka River and Little Kalinkin Bridge over the Griboyedov Canal.

In 1836, the bridge was designed by P. Bazin, Sedov. It was a wooden arch bridge with granite (according to other sources of brick faced with granite) foundations. In 1866 it was Repaired. In 1876 the bridge was rebuilt, and a fence of cast iron bollards and grilles along with lampposts with an artistic casting was added to the bridge. In 1902, due to the laying of the tram rails the bridge was strengthened (without changing the design). Between 1929-1930, the bridge was rebuilt again (odnoprolёtny concrete bridge with through nadarochnym structure). The project was by OE Bugaeva and BD Vasiliev.
