Historical Society receives parts of failed 35W bridge

Email

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Parts of the collapsed Interstate 35W Bridge were being turned over Thursday to the Minnesota Historical Society for eventual public viewing.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is transferring four pieces to a Historical Society storage facility in St. Paul. Two of those pieces are gusset plates that investigators determined gave way under the road surface, leading to the downtown Minneapolis bridge's failure six years ago.
