83-Year-Old Fort Steuben Bridge Ohio destroyed in just 3.5 seconds

It may have taken years to build the Fort Steuben Bridge, Ohio some 83 years back - but it took just 3..5 seconds to blew it off, through controlled demolition technology. Watch the video below:

Business Insider reports:
It took 153 pounds of explosives and only a few seconds to bring down Fort Steuben Bridge on the Ohio River this morning.  
The 83-year-old, 1,255-foot bridge was closed to traffic in 2009 after the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) declared it "functionally obsolete," according to Ohio Valley's WTOV9.
