Mississippi River bridge demolition continues

Tuesday, November 9, 2004

Demolition work on the old Mississippi River bridge will continue today with two simultaneous blasts. The blasts are set for noon and will demolish the remains of Pier 3 and bring the Pier 2 remains to water level. The work is being done by a contractor hired by the Missouri Department of Transportation. The Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge and Aquamsi Street near the old bridge will be closed during the explosions as a precaution.
