Viewing locations for the blast are extremely limited, with the majority on private property. Please be respectful to private landowners, businesses, and first responders. Do not block driveways or access roads.
To allow the public the best view of this exciting milestone in the building of the new Lance Corporal Leon Deraps I-70 Missouri River (Rocheport) Bridge, the Missouri Department of Transportation plans to livestream the blast on this page. The blast and livestream are tentatively scheduled for 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 10, 2023.
Signal strength in the area surrounding the bridge, however, is not optimal for a livestream. Should technical issues disrupt the livestream, MoDOT will attempt a Facebook Live event at facebook.com/MoDOTCentral.
After the demolition, the recording of the blast will be shared here and on YouTube @MoDOTCentral.
