Video – Mill of the future imploded…

Blast lays to rest futuristic plant erected in 1967.

The so-called “mill of the future” is no more. The Weirton Steel Basic Oxygen Plant in West Virginia was imploded on Saturday morning.

The massive BOP mill was completed in 1967 and covered more than six acres at the north end of town. At the time, it was dubbed the “mill of the future.”
