Jonathan Hulton Bridge
The Jonathan Hulton Bridge, located in Oakmont Pennsylvania, is a 4 span bridge located over the Allegheny River. The structure was detonated on January 26, 2016.
The lower chord of the bridge consisted of heavy I bar construction which required charges capable of cutting up to 2 inches of steel. Over 100 pounds of RDX linear shape charges were used to sever the bridge into manageable sizes. The project scope did not include blasting of the river piers.
The blasting process was completed on schedule, in six days, without incident by a crew of four.
