The bridge has not been overhauled since its construction in 1938.
The installation of the restored granite slabs has begun on Bolshoy Kamenny Bridge. Experts have eliminated local damage, these areas have returned to their original appearance. Installation work is carried out using cranes on the right bank of the bridge. This was told by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Housing and Communal Services and Improvement Petr Biryukov.
“During the repair work on the first half of the bridge, about 2.2 thousand square meters of granite elements were restored,” the deputy mayor said.
Before installing the granite, the surfaces of the bridge are cleaned and leveled, then the stone is attached to the wall of the structure using anchors. The resulting voids between the stone and the wall are poured with a special bonding solution.
On the bridge, work has begun on dismantling the granite cladding on the left-bank side; these slabs will also be sent for restoration.

At the same time, the bridge continues to function and will not be closed completely, ”said Pyotr Biryukov.
