Lake Champlain Bridge, the 2,184-foot-long span bridge between Crown Point, N.Y and Addison, Vermont was demolished into the icy lake, Monday. Controlled explosions brought the Bridge down in less than ten seconds.

The bridge was closed October 16 when Engineers found out that the bridge’s condition was not safe enough to function properly because of severe erosion to its concrete piers.

Advanced Explosives Demolition, Inc., handled the detonation. You can see the Lake Champlain bridge demolition video below:
