It went off with bang, one which could be felt across the entire city.
Thousands of people gathered in downtown Saskatoon as part of the Traffic Bridge was demolished on Sunday morning.
After one thunderous explosion, the bridge fell to the berm below, and the show was over.
Saskatoon's Kappaco Films used two drones, other cameras and a GoPro they put on the bridge to capture up-close footage.
People across the city shared the moment and memories of the Traffic Bridge on social media.

I heard the #trafficbridge explosion from inside the studio...and saw it on a web stream 15 seconds later. So cool!— @ericandersonCBC
A moment of panic then remembered they blew up the bridge today. Felt it in Lakeridge. #yxe— @Ms_Nicole_M
