WARREN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

It took two attempts to blow up part of the old span of the Jeremiah Morrow Bridge -- which was recently replaced -- on Sunday. 

The first implosion occurred around 7:10 a.m.

ODOT officials said the demolition was unsuccessful, only part of the bridge came down.

The second implosion attempt happened just before 12 p.m. A portion of the bridge appeared to be standing, but ODOT officials said it was considered to be a success.

Law enforcement and construction personnel shut down I-71 and other various access points around the bridge, along the river and scenic trail.

Interstate 71 was completely shut down from the State Route 73, Caesars Creek exit to the Lebanon exit State Route 48 while crews completed the implosion.

Both sides were reopened around 1:10 p.m.
