A 1,585 Feet Bridge Blowing Up [pic]

Oh destruction, sometimes you look so good. The Fort Steuben Bridge spanned 1585 feet across the Ohio River, connecting Ohio to West Virginia. It was time for the 84 year old bridge which had been closed for transport since 2009. The concrete and steel suspension bridge was taken down by contractors Joseph B. Fay Company who used 153 pounds of explosives, in 490 shaped charges, in 136 locations along the bridge.
