Rybina (at km 14.98). A swing bridge for narrow-gauge railway. The bridge's clearance is about 2.7 m and depends on the actual water level. The bridge is operated manually by means of a system of gears and transmissions.

Rybina (at km 15.45). Road drawbridge. The clearance of the closed bridge is approximately 2.58 m and depends on the actual water level. The bridge is mounted on wooden piles driven into the river bottom. The piles support four concrete bridge spans. The last, movable spans are of steel, riveted, latticework construction.
