As part of more major improvements to the busy 435 corridor in southern Johnson County, crews from Clarkson Construction this summer detonated sophisticated explosives to demolish the aging Roe Bridge structures, in order to make way for wider lanes and a new, “diverging diamond” interchange. Crews placed a bed of dirt under the bridges before the blast, to help protect the pavement on 435 below, so that the rubble could be cleared quickly and interruptions to traffic minimized.
