US Route 59 Amelia Earhart Bridge Demolition

Project Details


This project consisted of the careful dismantling of a thru truss bridge over the Missouri River. The structure, measuring 2,677 feet in length and 25 feet in width, was methodically taken apart by Omega. The team skillfully managed both the superstructure and substructure in a navigable waterway, employing a mix of traditional demolition methods and controlled blasting. Remarkably, the channel was reopened within a 24-hour period, ensuring minimal disruption.
