WVDOH releases up close view of bridge demolition

Posted: Updated:
SAINT ALBANS, West Virginia -

The Dick Henderson Bridge connecting Saint Albans and Nitro is being replaced. Onlookers were able to see the bridge from a distance, but Thursday, members of the West Virginia Division of Highways released a video showing an up close look of the bridge and its piecemeal demolition.

Workers are cutting the steel truss and lowering the bridge piece by piece onto a barge. The barge then takes the piece to a recycling plant. 

The process is expected to last until March.
