They are blowing up the bridge today.  The bridge is 80 years old, and is one of two bridges that cross Lake Champlain.
The bridge was opened by Gov Franklin D. Roosevelt.
The bridge was shut down, because of structural problems a few months ago, causing huge issues for the commuters that use the bridge to cross the lake.
To read the history of the bridge, check out WCAX’s story.  Their story on the actual bridge explosion is here.
