Bridge Demolition

Knoxville (WVLT) - The plans took months.

The action, only seconds.

A small crowd gathered to watch the James White Parkway Bridge come crashing down about 7:30 Sunday morning

Workers placed explosive charges below ground and a few feet above in the bridge's piers.

TDOT officials says it will take two weeks to clean up the debris.

During this time Jackson Avenue will be closed.

The new bridge should be finished by end of September.
