IMPLOSION VIDEO: Arkansas Dept. of Transportation demolishes old State Highway 7 bridge over Buffalo National River
PRUITT, Ark. (KY3) - The Arkansas Department of Transportation demolished the old State Highway 7 bridge at Pruitt.
The Harrison Police Department captured the implosion on Wednesday.
The bridge crossed over the Buffalo National River. Engineers believed the historic bridge could not adequately handle traffic because of its narrow width. Contractors recently finished a new bridge next to it.
Throughout this project, Buffalo National River staff worked closely with ARDOT to provide for the safety of park visitors and to protect the environmental integrity of the river.
