LIVINGSTON COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

The demolition contractor on the Old Ledbetter Bridge has halted efforts to top Pier "C" until Monday, according to KYTC.

The demolition crew made several unsuccessful attempts to pull over the 83 year old pier on Wednesday.

As dark approached, engineers chose to halt the demolition work and wait to resume efforts on Monday, following the Thanksgiving Holiday, according to KYTC.

Once Pier "C" is topped, the contractor has tentative plans to use explosives to detonate the remaining portion of the two in-water piers around December 4.
