Coolest Contest Ever
London Bridge may have fallen down but the Wilson Bridge over the Potomac River will be blown up at midnight on August 24th. Even better, the demolition explosives will be triggered by the winner of a contest for worst commuter horror story.
Of course, it won't be long before commuters clamor for the destruction of the replacement bridge. Both the old and the new versions are draw bridges and can be opened as often as 260 times a year. Not a problem except for the fact that Wilson Bridge is part of Interstate 95, one of the busiest highways in the nation.
