26 bridges – further demolition of the old traffic bridge

26 bridges – further demolition of the old traffic bridge

And then there was one.

Another segment of the traffic bridge in Saskatoon was brought down by explosives today. It was built in 1907 and originally had 5 spans of iron truss bridge. Today only one span remains in place. I will miss this piece of history and hope that the city replaces it with something with as much character as the original beauty had.

I took Julia and Daniel down to watch this detonation. It was a cool experience for them and myself as I had never before seen explosives detonated in real life. Quite the sound and shock wave even from the safe viewing distance that we were at.

I am doing a mini project on Saskatoon bridge photos in 2016.  More on that later.
