US officials blow up old bridge


The Missouri Department of Transportation closed the I-55 road on Friday to demolish the Union Road Bridge.

Built in the early 1960s, the bridge had deteriorated beyond the point of repair, damaged by trucks striking its supports.

A new bridge is due to be completed by Autumn 2010.
