Project Experience

Donora Webster Bridge

Donora Webster Bridge is located between Donora and Webster Pennsylvania across the Monongahela River.  This bridge was built in 1908 and was still relatively sound for a bridge of its age.


On July 1, 2015 the three thru truss spans over the Monongahela River were detonated. The heavy I-Bar construction required larger charges, which cause higher air blast conditions. Approximately 85 pounds of linear shape charges were used to blast the structure. The center span, referred to as a Camelback, was in excess of 500 feet In length and was one of a very few of its kind left in the United States.


After the detonation of the bridge work, members of the blasting crew worked hand in the hand with the river salvage crew to cut, rig, and remove the steel from the channel.
