The 1584ft bridge, which served Ohio and West Virginia, was declared structurally deficient and functionally obsolete in 2009.

A public information officer explained of the incredible demolition display: “The basic premise of explosives operation is to isolate the key structural members of the bridge and cut them with linear-shaped charges to safely segment and drop the bridge to the surface below.”

Judging by the absolutely massive explosion, which sees the bridge engulfed in orange flames and then disintegrate into nothingness, you would want to be standing well back when it happened.
