Part of the 31st Street Bridge was brought down Thursday morning. A span of the bridge over the Allegheny River’s back channel was brought down with explosives around 10 a.m.
The Greenfield Bridge which has been coming down on its own a chunk at a time for two decades is going to be imploded – dropped from its height to the Parkway below in a cloud of dust and debris.
After 100 years, an old but historic bridge in our area is now history!
With the flip of a switch, 150-pounds of explosives took down the old Charleroi-Monessen Bridge shortly before 9 a.m. this morning to make way for a brand new span between Washington and Westmoreland Counties.
