I-35W St Anthony Falls Bridge

(from Wikipedia)

The I-35W Saint Anthony Falls Bridge crosses the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, Minnesota in the U.S., carrying north-south traffic on Interstate Highway 35W. The ten-lane bridge is the replacement for the I-35W Mississippi River Bridge, which collapsed on August 1, 2007. It was planned and is maintained by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT). The planning, design, and construction processes were completed faster than normal because Interstate 35W is a critical artery for commuters and truck freight.[2] The bridge opened September 18, 2008, well ahead of the original goal of December 24
