The bridge that fell


On August 1, 2007 the 35W Bridge collapsed in Minneapolis during evening rush hour. It was horrifying to watch the news coverage of crushed cars and school buses under concrete, resting in the river. I immediately contacted co-workers who traveled over the bridge every day, and they had remarkably passed over just minutes before it went down.

The new 35W Bridge is beautiful and strong, and this is the view of downtown Minneapolis from the bridge on day 306 of Photo 365.
