MnDOT Releases Remnants Of Collapsed Bridge



Bookmark and Share

Minnesota transportation officials are distributing remnants of the Interstate 35W bridge that collapsed in 2007.
    
MnDOT says the material is being distributed at its Oakdale facility from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday. Legislation passed this year specifies who's eligible for the steel and MnDOT says it's contacted most of those people and groups.
    
Some 9 million pounds of rusting, lime-green steel are spread across two storage facilities. Whatever isn't claimed by Thanksgiving will be sold for scrap.
    
The bridge collapsed during rush hour on Aug. 1, 2007, killing 13 people and injuring 145 others.
