Advance Mills Bridge Removal

The removal of the main span of the Advance Mills Bridge on 5/28/09. The bridge spans the North Fork of the Rivanna River near Charlottesville, VA and has stood in this location since at least 1942. The estimated weight was 54,000 pounds, but remarks from the crane operator from across the river indicated that it weighed more.
