The wooden pedestrian bridge was built there in 1930. It was under the jurisdiction of the district, and then the bridge was put on to Lenmosttrest books. The bridge was built at the request of the residents of areas located near the bridge.

In 1989, under the project of engineer of V.I. Feldman of Trest Design and Construction Bureau, the bridge was rebuilt in a two-span metal simple bridge.
The span consisted of metal welded I-beams. The bridge abutments and supports are reinforced concrete with capping.
The bridge asphalt concrete pavement on metal slab was laid on the sidewalk. The bridge length and width remained unchanged.
The railings were metal welded ones of a simple pattern.
The bridge was built by efforts of Specialized Installation and Maintenance Directorate under supervision of N.G. Karamyshev. Head V.M. Zaitsev of the Operation Department exercised technical supervision of the work.
