RAW VIDEO: TX bridge implodes
Marble Falls (KXAN) — Crews set off a series of blasts in Texas Sunday, and in a matter of seconds, an old highway truss bridge was demolished.
City officials and spectators gathered to watch the implosion from a safe distance. The explosives were so powerful they knocked out 911 and phone service.
A resident who lives 26 miles away from the blast said she could feel her house shake.
The implosion cleared the way for a bigger and safer bridge across the lake.
