Super Slow Motion Bridge Demolition

by twistedsifter


Watch demolition experts fell the old Marble Falls Bridge in Central Texas in super slow motion. Photographer Kirk Drummond captured the amazing scene on a Red Epic camera filming at 300 FPS. Over 950 feet of metal truss works collapsed in an eventful four seconds after having been up for nearly 78 years.

According to the Statesman:

The demolition was part of a $30 million project to remove the existing four-lane bridge, built in 1936 and later expanded, and replace it with two side-by-side, two-lane bridges, each with ample shoulders and 6-foot-wide sidewalks. The original bridge had virtually no shoulder lanes and a single 4-foot-wide sidewalk. [source]
