LOUISIANA, Mo. — A second implosion event is scheduled to drop two remaining truss spans of the old Champ Clark Bridge into the Mississippi River between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. Monday, Nov. 18.
The first implosion to demolish two spans of the old bridge took place in October. Since then, span one over the railroad tracks has been removed. Now plans are in place for the second implosion to drop the remaining two truss spans, four and five, on the Illinois side.
“As we experienced with the first demolition event, the timing of the blast can be delayed. Massman Construction will do its best to have the blast occur within the scheduled window of time. However, ensuring the safety of everyone involved is their number one priority, so a delay may be possible,” Missouri Department of Transportation Project Director Keith Killen said.
James O. "Jim" Thornton, 87, of Hannibal, Mo., and formerly of Racine, Wis., passed away at 1:07 p.m., Tuesday, November 12, 2019, at Hannibal Regional Hospital in Hannibal.
