The Coast Guard, along with Quincy, Boston and Massachusetts State police, set up a 1000-yard safety zone between Moon Island and Long Island on March 23rd. Shortly after, with a large burst of smoke, a 750-foot-long section of the Long Island Bridge, in Boston, was demolished. The demolition targeted three sections of the bridge, sections 12, 13 and 14 – each 250 feet long. The demolition, by Walsh Construction Co., is expected to cost $20.6 million and is to be completed by the end of April.
