People living near Brookport may be hearing loud noises as demolition work has begun at Brookport Lock and Dam 52 on the Ohio River. This photo was taken recently on a sunny day with the I-24 Bridge in the background. The contract was awarded to C.J. Mahan Construction Co., located in Columbus, Ohio. Following each explosion, debris is removed from the riverbed and placed on a barge.
