Sagamore Parkway bridge demolition´╗┐

Sagamore Parkway Eastbound Bridge demolition July 12, 2016.

Today, July 12th, 2016, one of the road bridges, over the Wabash River, was demolished, using explosives. This is the latest phase in the reconstruction project, of the bridge carrying the east bound carriageway of Sagamore Parkway, formerly US52, from West Lafayette to Lafayette, Indiana.

River Road, Old State Road 43, which is situated next the Wabash River, and passes under the bridge, has been closed from Monday July 11, 2016, for approximately one month.

Traffic from the east bound bridge has been diverted onto the other, west bound bridge, temporarily. The deck had previously been stripped off of the bridge framework, and the most easterly span was removed, before the framework was demolished, at approximately 9AM, on the 12th. Crews have been given 24 hours to remove the debris from the river.

The east bound bridge is situated south of the west bound bridge, and was constructed in 1936, and is therefore older than the west bound bridge. The two bridges are of completely different designs.

US 52 Sagamore Parkway Eastbound Wabash River Bridge

This interesting bridge is of Warren Deck Truss construction. It was built in 1936, has a total span of 982 feet, and carries the east bound carriageways of US52, from West Lafayette to Lafayette, across the Wabash River and State Road 43, at Lafayette, in Indiana. http://bridgehunter.com/in/tippecanoe/19010/

As I type this, at the end of May 2016, work is about to begin to remove and replace this old bridge. The structure and superstructure are deemed to be structurally deficient, and also the construction is similar the I35W bridge in Minnesota that collapsed suddenly in August 2007. http://bridgehunter.com/mn/hennepin/mississippi-35w/

The pictures were taken from underneath the bridges, besides State Road 43, May 30th, 2016.
