They Blew Up the Bridge!

December 30, 2009

The infamous North Country bridge across Lake Champlain was demolished on Monday. NYDOT closed the bridge in mid October for safety reasons. Monday’s demolition was the first big step toward rebuilding a new one.

Here are two videos of the actual demolition from You Tube. The first one is from a pro news team, the second is raw amateur footage. I included this for their recording of the actual detonation. You can’t see much because of the weather but you get an idea of how the 130 db explosion went off.

Now the real fun begins, cleaning up all the debris from the explosion.

    I can’t believe people were driving on this bridge just several months ago and now POOF it’s gone. I hate driving over bridges, they’re all old around here :\
