This is the Marble Falls bridge, located at Lake Marble Falls in Texas. It was destroyed on Sunday:

From a local news report:
Sunday’s implosion went smoothly with the exception of knocking out phone service in the area for several hours.
TxDOT crews will spend the next several days removing debris from the lake.
Areas of Burnet, Blanco, and Llano Counties are without telephone service due to a major telephone line being damaged during the explosion.
As of 5:30 Sunday evening, cell phones and land line telephones were still out of service. Verizon estimates that some service will be restored late Sunday night.
