A draft of a new bridge that will span the Iset River in Yekaterinburg was released to the public on Wednesday.
The new bridge will extend from Zarechnyi Sort and nearby neighborhoods to Opalihinskoy Papanina in the middle of Yekaterinburg.
The new bridge will provide residents, students and professionals quicker access to the center of Yekaterinburg.
