Design and survey work on the construction of the new railway bridge began immediately after the collapse of the span of the old structure on June 1, 2020, under the influence of the abundant flood waters of the Kola River.

The survey and design work was completed in a short time, which made it possible to restore communication between Murmansk and the center of the country in a record 105 days. On September 28, 2020, train traffic began on the new railway bridge.

The project includes measures to dismantle the structures of the destroyed bridge, remove engineering networks from the construction zone and reconstruct the approaches to the new bridge, taking into account the prospect of building a second track on the Vykhodnoy — Kola section. During the construction of the new bridge, traffic was organized on a temporary bypass through Blockpost 9 km.
