31st St. Bridge in Pittsburgh After Being Blown Up and Demolished (pic by @pgtraffic)Forget the bridge, most Pittsburghers would agree that they should’ve just blow up Route 28 altogether! The blast happened at 10 AM sharp and traffic was halted for an extra 15 minutes. The debris dropped into the river (back channel) below. Sounds environmentally friendly! Disclaimer: The before pic isn’t actually the part that was blown up, but hey, it’s all the 31st Street Bridge isn’t it?

Which part of the bridge was blasted?
