"The Lowry Avenue Bridge, a Minneapolis landmark since 1905, will be removed by implosion at 9 a.m. Sunday, June 21. The current structure, which has been closed since April 2008, must be removed before construction can begin on the replacement bridge this fall.
Due to lack of structural integrity, imploding the current structure is the safest option available to workers, and results in minimal disruption to the environment and river navigation. The implosion will sever what remains of the steel trusses, dropping them into the river; residents should expect to hear a loud, deep, boom-like sound."
