Pomeroy Mason Bridge HD 720P
The info states it was imploded April 21, 2009.
Is the old bridge still there?
Streetview still has shots of old bridge with new under construction as of May 7, 2010. I added them but can't say how long they will stay on streetview.

Mason County couple get bridge souvenir in their bedroom
By The Associated Press
MASON, W.Va. -- A West Virginia couple got an unexpected souvenir from the demolition of the Pomeroy Mason Bridge when a piece of it landed in their spare bedroom.
When workers imploded the top half of a pier Wednesday, the blast sent a football-sized piece through the siding of Steve and Kelly Stewart's house in Mason. Kelly Stewart says the piece landed in a bean bag chair and missed her by a few feet.
She says she was standing in the room filming the demolition.
The pier on West Virginia's side of the Ohio River was the last major remnant of the bridge that linked Mason with Pomeroy, Ohio. A new bridge opened in December.
The new bridge has opened and the old bridge awaits its removal.
What happen to the new bridge? Why did the work on the new bridge stop? I drive over the old one all the time and am afraid that it will fall. The bridge on the Ohio River in porterfield and parkersburg WV. is done now and it started after they did. So what is the hold up?
This is a Mount Vernon Bridge Co. bridge. Please send any additional information about this company to me at email@example.com and check our Knox County (Ohio)Historical Society website (www.knoxhistory.org) for more info on the MVBCo. soon.
