Watch This Bridge Get Completely Blown Away in a Massive Demolition [Video]

Recommended Videos

Completed in 1929, the Fort Steuben Bridge spanned the Ohio River for some 83 years before it finally met its match in the form of 153 pounds of explosives. The decision to do away with the bridge apparently came from mounting concerns over its structural integrity, and decreased traffic in the wake of increased weight restrictions for vehicles crossing the bridge. It’d also become functionally obsolete, on account of the completion of the nearby Veterans Memorial Bridge in 1990. With all that against it, there wasn’t much else to do with the crossing except blow it to hell. See another view of the demolition, after the break.
