Videos of Hoan Bridge Demolition

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
For those of you who have not been following the saga of the sagging Hoan
Bridge in Milwaukee, the distressed span was explosively demolished with
amazing precision this afternoon.  There wasn't much margin for error,
because the subject 520-ton steel and concrete span was directly over an
important building at a major sewage treatment plant.  You can read the
complete story, and watch three separate videos (with sound) at the
following website:
