Bridge goes down in Kentucky - level 2

An 84-year-old bridge in Kentucky, USA was demolished.

The bridge connected Kentucky with Indiana. The bridge had more parts which were demolished one by one. The last part was 60 feet long and its demolition was quite exciting to watch.

Work will now begin on the new bridge. People will use parts of the old bridge and make them bigger. The new bridge should be wider than the demolished old one.

Difficult words: demolish (break completely), exciting (very interesting).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
