Tel Aviv’s Ma’ariv Bridge to be demolished tomorrow

If you hear a blast in central Tel Aviv Friday morning, don’t be concerned. Police announced Wednesday that plans had been finalized for the demolition of the iconic Ma’ariv Bridge, to make room for construction of the Tel Aviv Light Rail’s first line.

Police are making preparations for the public to observe the explosion that will take down the overpass, and said Wednesday there would be a viewing section for the public, as well as a press section.

On Wednesday afternoon, police were already closing streets around the bridge, which takes traffic from Menachem Begin Street over the junction with Lincoln, Carlebach and Yitzhak Sadeh streets.
