HENDERSON CO., Ky. (WFIE) - The Old Spottsville Bridge is now no more.

The large truss was imploded Wednesday morning.

This comes after the first small truss implosion that happened a few weeks ago.

Now that the implosion has taken place, officials say they will need to conduct an inspection of the new bridge before its reopened to traffic.

This is a second phase of a four phase plan to demolish the Old Spottsville Bridge.

Officials say drivers will be temporarily stopped outside of the 1000 ft. clear area while the implosion operation and post-implosion inspections are conducted.
