The bridge demolition was completed in a professional and less then entertaining manner as it should have been. The contractor (from Idaho) did an excellent job in placing the charges and fulfilling the bounds of his contract.
As I watched the demolition from the comfort of my den I couldn't believe the rudeness of people whose vain glory was greater then a clear view of the bridge in its final moments. To those who wanted camera time, they obviously didn't get enough yearbook coverage or weren't finalist on "America's Most Stupid."
The bridge is gone, along with it's history, but done in a professional less then Hollywood manner. Good Job!

stuipdest idea was to blow up a bridge pollute the water and then have to retrieve it while in the water. It would have cost half as much to take it down above the water. But hey who cares its taxpayers money. Rockpile who are you kidding -not me.
