Lake Champlain Bridge

Posted by
John (Williston, Vermont, United States) on 22 April 2017 in Architecture.

The Lake Champlain Bridge was constructed at Crown Point for reasons mentioned yesterday. It is a shorter span than would be required at any other part of the Lake Champlain. The original bridge was constructed in 1926, but had to be demolished in 2009, which was done the most efficient way known—high explosives. One of my regrets is having been too ill (it was a cold, cold snowy day) to drive down to watch it get blown up. However, if you go on YouTube and search for “Lake Champlain Bridge demolition” you can watch is get blown up from several vantage points. There is even a slow motion version if that is what you’re into. It is better than bombing some poor village somewhere.
