Shlyuzovoy Bridge in Moscow

Shlyuzovoy Bridge is a road bridge across the Vodootvodny Canal in Moscow. Blocks the eastern mouth of the canal, connects the Kosmodamianskaya and Shlyuzovaya embankments of the Moscow River. Built in 1965 according to the design of ZV Freidina.

The name of the Shlyuzovoy Bridge and the embankment is a memory of the wooden Krasnokholmsky sluice that blocked the Vodootvodny Canal for almost a century (from the 1830s to the mid-1930s). The lock was located upstream, approximately opposite the preserved house No. 6, building 30 on the Lock Embankment. Before the construction of the bridge, the traffic flow from the center to the Novospassky Bridge and further to the south was closed precisely through Shlyuzovaya Embankment and Kozhevnicheskaya Street.

The lock bridge is built parallel to the channel of the Moskva River, at an angle of 35° to the axis of the canal. The arch of the main span is formed by two T-shaped consoles (outlets of the channel console are 9.3 m each) and a central insert 14.06 m long. All parts are made of precast prestressed reinforced concrete. The foundation of the coastal supports is on concrete piles up to 8 m deep.
