...
Demolished you say?

Maybe similar circumstances, ( http://www.timesunion.com/AspStories/st ... yID=882621 )
this was video making the newscasts yesterday as The Champlain Bridge that connected NY to
Vermont up near Crown Point Light was imploded ... The new bridge isnt slated to be completed
until 2011 or so.
