The older spans of the Charleroi-Monessen Bridge await implosion. (Ron Paglia photo)
Tomorrow I have a bridge implosion party to attend.
It's always cool to watch a bridge crumble regardless if some folks had supported preserving the original humpback spans on the 104-year-old Charleroi-Monessen Bridge.
The battle to save the steel bridge is crossing the Monongahela River, connecting Monessen and North Charleroi, Pa., is over and it's scheduled to fall at 9 a.m.
Thanks to former local newspaper editor Ron Paglia for sending along the photo, above, showing the bridge about ready to be destroyed.
