ST. CHARLES, Mo (KMOV.com) – A big explosion sent the final two sections of the westbound Blanchette Bridge into the Missouri River on Tuesday.

Crews used explosives Tuesday to take down the sections of the bridge that connects St. Louis and St. Charles counties along Interstate 70. The work is part of a $63 million rehabilitation project.

While the original raw video was pretty neat, the slow-motion version is even better. Click the video above to check it out.
