After the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the Russky bridge project was implemented by Russia.
- In 2007, the planning and design of Russky bridge began because Russky Island was selected as the venue for the 2012 APEC Forum. Russky bridge is one of many projects on the island.
- In September 2008, construction of Russky bridge began.
- In August 2009, the construction of bridge overpasses on the island and the mainland begins, and construction of the main tower began in September.
- In 2010, the main tower with a height of 1,053 ft (320.9 m) was completed. Their tasks include not only maintaining the central span, but also resisting adverse weather conditions in the form of gales and temperature changes.
- In May 2011, the installation of the deck of the main bridge began, and the installation height of the deck was 230 ft (70 m). In June, cable installation began.
- In April 2012, The bridge closure successfully completed the panel installation.
- On July 2, 2012, the bridge opened, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev participated in the completion ceremony of the bridge. it was officially named Russky Bridge on September 3.
The Russky bridge, built on the Eastern Bosphorus, is one of the most ambitious bridges in Russia. Because the width of the Eastern Bosphorus reached more than 1 kilometer, the Russky bridge had to be built particularly long. There are about 5,000 residents on Russky Island across the bridge.
The Russky bridge has a total length of 10,170 ft (3,100 m). The Longest span is 3,622 ft (1,104 m) and is the longest cable-stayed bridge in the world.
The bridge body (tower) is 1,053 ft (320.9 m) tall, second only to the Millau Viaduct in France. The deck of the main bridge weighs 23,000 tons. Deck height is 230 ft (70 m ). The width of the 4-lane deck is 97 ft (29.5 m ).
It total cost US $1.1 billion. The design life of the bridge reached 100 years.
