Demolition continues on the Belle Terrace overpass in Bakersfield.
One half of the bridge has already been taken down. Crews are not blasting it apart. Instead, they are breaking it piece by piece.
The bridge’s demolition is part of the Centennial Corridor Project to improve State Route 58 through Bakersfield.
The bridge will be replaced by a new overpass, and a new connector will be built at Wible Road with wider lanes.
