Three Year Anniversary Of Bridge Collapse
It was three years ago Sunday (August 1, 2007) that the 35W bridge collapsed in Minneapolis. 13 people died and 145 were injured and many still struggling with those injuries. Even thought it’s been three years there still is not a memorial honoring those who died and were injured. Initial talk of building one at Gold Medal Park which is near the bridge site have faded since it’s been learned the land is under lease until 2017. The search continues for a site. Governor Pawlenty ordered flags at and near the State Capitol to fly at half staff Sunday to denote the somber anniversary.
