SUPERIOR, Wis. (AP) - A century-old trolley bridge has collapsed at a Superior industrial site, slightly injuring two contractors.

The collapse happened at the Graymont plant along Superior Bay around 3:45 p.m. Thursday.

Plant manager Phil Marquis tells WDIO-TV (https://bit.ly/1Eb7hBN) that contractors were doing preparations for a controlled demolition of the 102-year-old bridge, which had been planned for Sunday.

Marquis says the contractors were able to walk away from the collapse and were then taken by ambulance to a hospital.

Graymont is a supplier of lime and lime-based products. The trolley bridge could be easily seen from U.S. Highway 53 in Superior and Park Point in Duluth, Minnesota.
