Final Piece Of Dick Henderson Memorial Bridge Comes Crashing Down
March 8, 2013
The final piece of history came tumbling down into the river Friday morning as the Dick Henderson Memorial Bridge that connects to Nitro was detonated.
As onlookers in Nitro and St. Albans watched, the demolition appeared to go off without a hitch about 10 a.m.
The St. Albans section of the bridge was demolished last week. Work will continue on the replacement project for the bridge.
"At this point, we don't have any reason we can't get it up in November," state Department of Transportation spokesman Brent Walker said about the new bridge.
Eyewitness News had live stream coverage of the bridge demolition at wchstv.com, and featured live TV coverage on WVAH Fox 11.
