(Moline, IL) -- The old Interstate 74 bridge over the Mississippi River is nearly gone.

Crews detonated the fourth and final series of explosions Sunday, February 18, to demolish the anchorage--a large piece of concrete that stabilized the old bridge's cables.

It follows other demolitions in June, August, and October.

The explosions and cleanup cost $23-million in total.
