BRIDGE DEMOLISHED
Implosion sends 55-year-old I-90 bridge in Cleveland tumbling down into Cuyahoga River Valley

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, July 13, 2014 4:02 PM EDT
CLEVELAND


Clevelanders have said a dramatic goodbye to the old Inner Belt Bridge along Interstate 90.

The giant structure that carried traffic over the Cuyahoga River for 55 years was demolished early Saturday in a cloud of smoke and dust.

The Plain Dealer reports (http://bit.ly/1r8er4D) thousands of spectators came out for the show. They lined a grassy bluff that overlooked the bridge with cellphone cameras held high.

The structure was blown apart by a half-second blast of 182 pounds of explosives placed at 88 points along the bridge. The detonation sent more than 10 million pounds of steel crashing into the Cuyahoga River Valley below.

The bridge was designed to carry 100,000 vehicles a day, but had been carrying 140,000. A replacement bridge along I-90 is now in place.
