This Footage Of A Bridge Demolition In Oklahoma Will Blow Your Mind

We’ve seen a lot of things get destroyed in Oklahoma over the years. And while most of those things were unplanned or unwanted, we’ve found something that was destroyed on purpose – an old bridge in small town Oklahoma. This bridge demolition took place in November 2013, on SH-28 at Big Cabin Creek in Mayes County. The Parker truss style bridge, built in 1939, was taken down by the demolition crew using linear shaped charges to cut the bridge into five pieces. The pier bases were also removed by blasting. A replacement bridge was recently built adjacent to the original.

Take a look at the demolition and be prepared to be blown away (literally!):
