Suspension cables of Waldo-Hancock bridge crash into Penobscot River as demolition nears completion

By Mario Moretto, BDN Staff
Workers from S&R Corporation, of Lowell, Mass., severed the last remaining suspension cables on the Waldo-Hancock Bridge between Verona Island and Prospect on Thursday. The cables crashed into the Penobscot River, where they were later retrieved. Demolition of the defunct bridge, replaced in 2006 by the Penobscot Narrows Bridge, is expected to be complete in July.
