This cast-iron bridge crosses the Moika River at Nevskii Prospekt. It was often referred to as the green bridge because of the color it was painted. In the 1770s, it was named Politseiskii Most because chief-of-police Chicherin lived next door. In 1806, the wooden bridge was replaced by a cast-iron one made by engineer Geste. Between 1904 and 1907, engineers V.A. Bers, A.P. Pshenitskii and A.L. Stanovyi again widened it by building on cast-iron arches for the laying of tram-lines.
