Outdated Central Texas Highway Bridge Demolition

Quote:
MARBLE FALLS, Texas An outdated Central Texas highway bridge has been demolished using explosives instead of a tear-down process that could have taken 2 months.

Hundreds of bystanders gathered Sunday morning in Marble Falls watched the former U.S. 281 bridge come down.

The Texas Department of Transportation has been working on a $30 million project to replace the four-lane bridge over the Colorado River with 2 roomier spans.

Experts opted for explosives instead of taking apart the 77-year-old metal-and-concrete bridge.

Contractors will remove debris from the water and recycle as much as possible.

A new northbound bridge opened in December.

A new southbound bridge will be built in the same space as the old span.
