Explosion takes down majority of Old Eggners Ferry Bridge

A majority of the spans were taken down Monday morning of the old Eggners Ferry Bridge via an explosion.

The explosion happened just before 7:00 a.m.

The steel trusses fell into the bottom of the lake and will be removed by crane.

Two more spans will be taken down by a crane at a later date.

The bridge was originally opened in 1932 and closed earlier this year after the new bridge was opened to traffic.
