Southbound on Interstate 35W over the Mississippi River near downtown Minneapolis on a recent Sunday afternoon.
A section of the “then now wow” exhibit at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul features the 35W bridge collapse. The image shows the collapsed bridge. To the right is the emergency exit door from the school bus that was on the bridge when it collapsed. Everyone on board that bus survived.
August 1, 2007.
All the children and adults on the bus signed the door on display.
One hundred forty-five injured.
