Timelapse video shows the demolition over the weekend of a freeway bridge in downtown Las Vegas.

Crews demolished the U.S. 95 bridge at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard from Friday, April 20 through Monday, April 23.

Officials say the demolition was needed because of the age of the former bridge and the need for greater capacity.

It's also part of Project Neon -- the debris will be used as fill material on the project to widen Interstate 15 from Sahara Avenue to the Spaghetti Bowl.
