RURAL THOMPSON, N.D. — The old Thompson Bridge was imploded Friday morning.
The Red River bridge, which connects Grand Forks County Road 7 with Polk County State Aid Highway 9, was replaced by a $7.2 million bridge in early October.
The bridge, located about 15 miles southeast of Grand Forks, carried about 1,100 vehicles a day.
