We finally have an answer to the age-old question “How many operators does it take to dismantle an overpass overnight?”

For the Chinese city of Nanchang, the answer was 116.

According to the description of the video below, posted to YouTube by China’s state-run news outlet CCTV, the gang of excavators got started on demolishing the overpass at 10:30 p.m. and finished tearing down the main body of the structure overnight. Even more impressive, CCTV reports that traffic in the area was not disrupted.
