Bridge Demolition

*Volume Alert*

Authorities have successfully brought down the remainder of an Ohio River bridge with a series of planned explosions. The Ohio Department of Transportation closed the 83-year-old Fort Steuben Bridge three years ago because of deteriorating conditions and its limited use. The bridge came down shortly after 7 a.m. Tuesday as scheduled in Steubenville.

The bridge crumbled in just a few seconds following a series of small blasts.

The state planned to close portions of U.S. Route 22 and state Route 7 Tuesday morning while explosives brought down the rest of the bridge. Officials were also temporarily shutting down traffic near the bridge along the Ohio River.
