Weather Alert: Widespread Frost, Hard Freeze

54 Pounds of Explosives Will Destroy Bridge

Kingston, Roane County (WVLT) - Tuesday morning TDOT plans on bringing down what's left of one bridge here in East Tennessee.

The old US 70 bridge spans the Clinch River in Kingston.

If the weather is good, workers will set off 54 pounds of explosives on the bridge at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday.

That means folks traveling on US 70 in the area as well as Interstate 40 nearby can expect delays around the time of demolition.

Volunteer TV will be at the demolition and carry it live during the CBS Early Show.
