My mom called me at work freaking out because my little bro crosses that bridge multiple times a day. Sad, but they got the busload of kids off safely, so that is coo.

I think the thing that shocks me the most about this bridge thing is they had a problem with one in St. Paul last year. A bridge was being build/rebuilt that was to weak. They had to do renforcements on the bridge before anyone could use it. I'm also kinda surprised it happened when it did, rush is at 4:30 -5ish not 6pm. I guess in that way thank god it could have been much worse.

I was just reading about that on Yahoo news. It was still rush hour because they had it down to 2 lanes and traffic was bumper to bumper.
I guess that would make more sense. Last year when I lived over there I'd leave work at 3:30 because I'd spend a half hour in traffic, if I left at 4 it was a whole hour. If it was down to 2 lanes, yea it would be bumper to bumper on it and cedar which runs right next to it.


OK something is fucked up. That bridge was down to 2 lanes out of 4 both ways and this happened?
