107-year-old Saskatoon bridge taken down in precision demolition [WATCH]

Two of the southern spans of the Traffic Bridge collapsed onto a specially constructed berm



SASKATOON—Crowds of people lined the banks of the South Saskatchewan River in Saskatoon to watch explosions that brought down a portion of a 107-year-old bridge.

Two of the southern spans of the Traffic Bridge collapsed onto a specially constructed earth berm when 16 charges were simultaneously detonated early Jan. 10.

According to police, the demolition went off without a hitch.

The century-old bridge is being replaced.

The northern spans will be taken down later as construction moves forward.
