No fireworks in Steubenville bridge demolition

Bummer. The Ohio Department of Transportation is planning to take down one of three bridges over the Ohio River connecting Steubenville OH with WV next year, but it's not planning to use explosives. It will take the old bridge down piece by piece.

Details are in the Wheeling Intelligencer.

When I heard the old bridge was coming down, I was hoping Adam and I could see some explosions of the type we didn't get to see in Pomeroy. But apparently not.
