35W Bridge Collapse – 1 Year Later

It’s been one year since the 35W bridge gave way and it’s still unbelievable.

WCCO has a great retrospective on the survivors, the responders and others at the scene of the bridge collapse. Especially moving to us is the Coulter family and Paula, whom my wife use to work with.  The doctors didn’t think she’d live, let alone walk and talk.  It really goes to show you that the impossible is possible.

On Dec. 24th, 2008 the new 35W bridge will open.

To all the responders & rescue crews, the doctors & nurses, the thoughts & prayers and the construction workers bringing the bridge back to life, Thank You.

    It’s a shame that it takes a tragedy like this for everyone to realize how important routine bridge maintenance and assessments are.
