Fort Steuben Bridge Implosion

They exploded one of our bridges today. I wasn’t there to see the implosion but the photos are pretty spectacular. It’ll be odd driving down by the river and not seeing that bridge any more, even though it’s been closed for quite a while. The bridge had been here, crossing the Ohio River between Steubenville, OH and Weirton, WV since 1928.

    Holy cow, that is crazy! They blew up our Wilson Bridge here in D.C., linking Maryland and Virginia, a few years back… it’s insane to see something like that. Even though we know intellectually it’s “safe” and controlled, it’s still very jarring!
