If you haven’t seen this video of the Weatherford Street bridge implosion yet, get on it. Bridge to gravel in about a second. What’s more interesting is the fact that TxDOT officials apparently planned to keep part of the implosion from the public. Star-Telegram:
Before the blast, TxDOT spokeswoman Jodi Hodges had said: “There may be some small explosives, but we’re not advertising that to the world. It’s very controlled and very minor. We’ve certainly talked with all the local fire department and police and all that, but mostly it’s just demolishing that bridge and hauling off the debris.”
Then the blast was felt throughout DFW, with folks flooding 911. Well played.
