Falling down bridge

The Minneapolis bridge that collapsed in August of 2007 has been completely removed and replaced.  Here is a view of the rebuilt bridge from 1) the Plymouth street bridge directly to the south (downriver) 2) the Seven Corners entrance ramp to northbound 35W and 3) the Stone Bridge upriver.

The small bridgelike structure in front is part of a lock.  River traffic enters the lock on the right beyond the pier-like structure with the yellow end.
