I-71 reopens after third attempt to implode old Jeremiah Morrow bridge

MORROW, OH (FOX19) -

I-71 has reopened after the third attempt to implode the old Jeremiah Morrow Bridge on Sunday.

After two attempts last week, crews planned to bring down the remaining portion of the bridge this morning.

It happened around 7 a.m.

However, shortly after an ODOT official tweeted that not all of the structure came down successfully. 

"After a demolition blast on Sunday morning, crews will now begin manually dismantling the remaining section of the old Jeremiah Morrow bridge to remove it," said ODOT Press Secretary Matt Bruning. "The next phase of work will begin immediately and is not expected to impact traffic or require additional closures to I-71."

The team inspected the new Jeremiah Morrow Bridge before reopening I-71 shortly before 8:30 a.m.
