See The Amazing Time Lapse Video Demolition Of The Fountain Street Bridge Cambridge
A Hive Of Steel Giants Make Short Work Of Solid Concrete And Rebar
There was an ominous, impending, sense of doom hanging in the air the night before the demolition of the Fountain Street Bridge. It has spanned the width of Canada's busiest highway for more than five decades and performed its job flawlessly throughout its tenure until progress announced that its services were no longer required.
Digging machines prepared the site for execution by unearthing its security blanket of soil at both ends and left it standing awaiting the green light.
9 1/2 Hours In A Remarkable 4 Minutes, 16 Seconds
What happened next, as you will witness, is nothing short of remarkable. The traffic stopped, thousands of vehicles were rerouted, a hive of giant machines arrived on the scene under the Priestly banner, and the concert of de-construction began.
