60 Tons Of A 100-Year-Old Bridge Plunges Into Genesee River
For more than 100 years a railroad trestle has stood the test of time over the Genesee River at Letchworth State Park. Like anything else that is over 100 years, old bits and pieces of the 1,050-ton structure has been falling or have been removed.
This past Wednesday a planned demo took out another 50-60-ton section of the bridge and plunged it into the river below.
You can watch the planned destruction of this part of the 1875 bridge in the video produced by Upstate NY photographer John Kucko.
The portion that was removed on Wednesday will now be cut up and trucked offsite to be recycled.
