Abstract: When the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis collapsed into the Mississippi River earlier this month, it got a lot of people’s attention. After all, it’s scary to imagine driving across a bridge and have it give way beneath you. It’s nerve-racking to watch divers search for bodies, and it’s sad to see families dealing with their grief. The bridge collapse got my attention too. I attended the University of Minnesota in the 1980s and I drove across that bridge many times.
