The spans from the old U.S. 68/Ky. 80 Lake Barkley Bridge at Canton collapse into the lake following its implosion around 7:15 a.m. Wednesday. The Trigg County Rotary Club auctioned off the honor of pushing the button to blow up the bridge. The winning bidder was Mary Beth Baker of Cadiz, who owns River Bend Farms, for $16,500. The new U.S. 68/Ky. 80 Lake Barkley bridge reopened to traffic about an hour later.
