Because there's nothing quite like a bridge demolition to get your heart pumping in the morning, here's what happened yesterday in Marble Falls, Texas, a town approximately 45 miles northwest of Austin.
The 80-year-old US 281 bridge over the Colorado River was imploded in a controlled explosion lasting a split second in front of a group of enthusiastic spectators. The blast cut fiber optic cables, cutting off telephone and communications services to a wide area.
This was not a SXSW-sanctioned event.
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...
