Demolition of U.S. 281 bridge in Marble Falls Texas.
The decades old truss bridge on U.S. 281 was the largest of its kind to ever be demolished in the state of Texas, making way for a bigger and safer bridge across the lake.
Texas Department of Transportation spokeswoman Kelli Reyna told KVUE their contractors decided to implode the bridge versus taking it down mechanically to save time.
TxDOT expects to save up to three months of construction time.
