The Lilly Bridge, located over Bluestone Lake in Summers County, WV, was detonated on November 16, 2015 for the WV Division of Highways, District 9. The bridge was a five span thru-truss structure with 4 – 80’ tall concrete piers.
The five spans over the Lake where demolished through the utilization of Controlled Explosives. The demolished spans where accessed by an installed temporary rock causeway. The spans where systematically processed and shipped for recycling.
The four concrete piers where drilled and imploded as well. The demolition of these piers by explosives was due to the existing height and safety concerns that would be generated if performed conventionally.
