唉 既然是幹道又是名橋 只因官僚疏失 它垮下來 死了無辜的人 而且美國還有很多像它的危橋 只能說大家要聽天由命

當我們聽聞這個意外而震驚的同時 更應從中記取教訓 關係到公共安全的事務 一定馬虎不得 以免無辜受害 謹向遇難者致意

When I look at all the pictures of that bridge, one thing really sticks out,and that is its skinny structure. Well skinny structure or not, but for a bridge that are only 40 years (young), the people that designed it and the ones that approved it should at least be reprimanded, and the ones that is responsible for its maintenance and safety should surely be fired from this kind of work, they surely have proved themselves unworthy. But the people at the top, wich have continous had warnings since 1990 should definetly be removed from their chair, and I dont care what chair they are sitting in.!! This whole thing is utterly SHAMEFULL !!!!

fascinating photo- incredibly illuminating angle- as to how it could collapse and how so many survived without injuries

É uma foto que dá um "refresh" na memória de quem a conheceu. Pelo que vi no local, em setembro/07, os escombros foram totalmente retirados e espero que construam uma bela ponte.

its called the mafia bridge not because of the mafia but because back in the day the minneapolis police would bring criminals down near the river banks under the 35W bridge (which doesn't exist anymore) and deal their own brand of justice.

My prayers are with the citizens of Minneapolis, Minnesota. I come up to Minneapolis, Minnesota on the summer to help out Higher Destiny Ministry Summer camping every year. I have been on that bridge dozens of times.
