In the wake of the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis-St. Paul collapsing this afternoon, I wonder: Is this the fate other parts of our infrastructure will experience over the next few decades? Many states under-invest in infrastructure maintenance, and we may be seeing more such accidents as time goes on because of that.
A few of my friends from Minneapolis-St. Paul have posted that they’re okay. I’m not sure I have current contact information for everyone. Coincidentally, one friend from that area just wrote today about a car accident she was in a few weeks ago. I hope she wasn’t anywhere near this incident.
