VIDEO: Watch as MoDOT blows up the I-70 bridge near Columbia, Missouri


This video captures the moment that the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) demolished the Rocheport Bridge over the weekend.

The bridge is located near Columbia, Missouri, and carries I-70 over the Missouri River.

After 63 years of use, the bridge was destroyed on the morning of September 10 to make way for a new I-70 bridge.

The demolition event drew a large crowd. Event attendee Malcolm Smith told local outlet KOMU, “This is once in a lifetime. This bridge has been there, my whole life. So, it will be really interesting to watch.”

In the videos below, you can see the dramatic explosion for yourself from a couple of different angles.
