The Missouri department of transportation is planning to take down a portion of the old Hurricane deck bridge on Friday afternoon. According to area engineer Bob Lynch, depending on the weather the American Bridge company will set the charges and prepare to blow the first span between 2 and 5pm Friday
Lynch says if you want to view it you best find a spot and be ready. He also says traffic will be stopped during the blast on land and water
More blast will happened within the next few weeks until the bridge has been totally removed.
