One Of The Worst Disasters In U.S. History Happened Right Here In Minnesota
For the most part, Minnesota doesn’t make the national news too often. If we do, it’s usually about our heavy snowfall or our frigid temperatures. But there have occasionally been events that gripped the nation for their severity. One of the most memorable was the 2007 I-35W bridge collapse in Minneapolis. This tragic event had lasting effects for many people in the area, and it remains one of the worst bridge failure disasters ever.
The 35W bridge collapse is one of the worst bridge disasters in U.S. history and will likely be remembered for years to come. The event found its way into the collective memory of all Minnesotans who were around when it happened.
